Sesame & Chicken Pasta Salad Recipe | Sturbridge Yankee WorkshopPasta salads are a summer staple, and their quantity and versatility (as a meal, side dish or snack) make them perfect for serving at barbecues and seasonal parties. Therefore, we’re highlighting four pasta salad recipes from our blog just in time for the Fourth of July (click on the titles for full ingredient lists and directions).

Rotini Pasta Salad Recipe

Perhaps the most standard pasta salad, this one is made with, of course, rotini, but also cubed cheddar, bell pepper, cucumber and tomato – although you could substitute and add just about any vegetable.

BLT Pasta Salad Recipe

We like this pasta salad with rotini too, and its mayonnaise bases offers a creamy alternative to Italian dressing based pasta salads.

Artichoke-Tortellini Pasta Salad

Back to the Italian dressing, this hearty dish is made indulgent with cheese-filled tortellini.

Chicken Sesame Pasta Salad

One of our new favorites, the key ingredient here is fresh ginger.
