Eight Great Pasta Salad Recipes

Sharing is caring!

Did you know it’s a fact that pasta salad recipes will fix any boring party? I’m only 50% Italian, but I’ve always only identified myself as such. This sounds awful, but I couldn’t even tell you what the other 50% is. My mom calls herself a mutt 🙂


That said, I’m a disappointing Italian – pasta is NOT my favorite. While my husband used to eat a pound of pasta in one sitting, I don’t eat it often. It leaves me bloated, so I tend to save pasta for nights before my long runs.

I do make an exception, though – and that’s pasta salad. Maybe it’s because I love barbecues, or because I love all “salads” – chicken, egg, tuna, potato, you name it. I can’t get enough of chilled pasta salads this summer. Here’s a round up of eight great ones I’ve tried recently!


Avocado Pasta Salad – I absolutely love avocado so this is my type of pasta salad loaded with avocado AND avocado dressing!


Mediterranean Pasta Salad – This pasta salad is full of everything that makes an amazing greek salad – olives, onions, cucumbers, tomatoes and feta cheese.


Italian Pasta Salad


BLT Pasta Salad – Mmmm…bacon. This bacon, lettuce and tomato pasta salad is sure to be a hit at any picnic or BBQ.


Creamy Southern Pasta Salad – this one is perfect for those of us who prefer a saucier pasta salad.


Cilantro Lime Southwestern Pasta Salad – this salad is packed with lime and all the flavors of the southwest you’d look for.


Tortellini Pasta Salad – if you love tortellini like I do, you’ll love this pasta salad recipe.


Bruschetta Pasta Salad – It’s like a bruschetta pizza but in pasta form. So good!

We hope you liked these fun pasta salad recipes! Which one was your favorite?
