Because each of these creations deserves a turn in the spotlight (and a spot on your warm-weather dinner rotation), we present the Great Gluten-Free Pasta Salad Roundup:
Vegan Caesar Pasta Salad, Simply Quinoa (pictured)
A perfect marriage between a favorite salad and summer pasta, this easy yet impressive recipe (which features our protein-packed Red Lentil & Quinoa Pasta Rotelle) also happens to be completely plant-based.
Summer Veggie Pasta Salad, Fork and Beans
Not only is this a fresh and flavorful pasta salad, but the way in which it’s presented – served in adorable buckets made of hollowed-out bell peppers – ensures that it’ll be a hit at any summer gathering.
Thai Peanut Macaroni Salad, Edible Perspective
With a creamy dressing made of peanut butter, Tamari, maple syrup and freshly grated ginger, this savory pasta salad is anything but ordinary. We love the addition of protein-packed edamame.
Chipotle Cilantro Pesto Black Bean Summer Pasta, Naturally Ella
A zesty cilantro-chipotle pesto makes a perfect dressing for our Black Bean & Quinoa Pasta Elbows. Fresh sweet corn, grape tomatoes and jalapenos, meanwhile, celebrate the final days of summer.
Spring Penne Salad with Lemon and Thyme, Fit and Frugal
If you’ve got a surplus of fresh salad greens on your hands, we recommend you try something a bit heartier than a simple salad – like, for example, this fresh, lemony dish featuring our Green Lentil & Quinoa Pasta Penne.
Healthy Southwest Pasta Salad with Chipotle-Lime Greek Yogurt Dressing, Ambitious Kitchen
There sure is a lot to love about this pasta salad: black beans, sweet corn, Roma tomatoes, fresh cilantro, black olives, and a creamy Greek yogurt dressing peppered with fragrant spices like cumin, paprika and chili powder.
Pasta Salad Made Healthy, Eating Bird Food
When you want a simple salad that allows the flavor of each ingredient to shine, try this easy and nutritious recipe. The dressing (a lovely combination of balsamic vinegar, fresh basil, crushed red pepper and coconut sugar) is so good you’ll want to put it on everything.
Quinoa Pasta Salad with Chicken Sausage, Fit Foodie Finds
Think chilled pasta salad can’t be hearty and filling? Think again. This crowd-pleasing dish packs a nutritional punch with sliced chicken sausage, bell pepper, broccoli, cherry tomatoes and our Red Lentil and Quinoa Pasta Rotelle.
