Pasta 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).
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.
We like this pasta salad with rotini too, and its mayonnaise bases offers a creamy alternative to Italian dressing based pasta salads.
Back to the Italian dressing, this hearty dish is made indulgent with cheese-filled tortellini.
One of our new favorites, the key ingredient here is fresh ginger.
