The Best Pasta Salad

When I reconnected with a childhood friend and she made this pasta salad it immediately brought me back to the memories of her mom's pasta salad that was the best I ever had. I finally got the recipe and now you can have it too.


  • Ready Time : 0 min



  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar
  • 3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 pound pasta (it is best with a tri color variety)
  • mix of vegetables like scallions, red peppers and sno peas, sliced julienne style thin


Mix all ingredients for dressing (everything through pasta) together in a container, shake it up.  Boil pasta per package directions, drain and let cool. Mix in vegetables and dressing about an hour before serving.  Enjoy.

    This looks great! I don’t make pasta salad enough, but I love eating it. I love how simple and flavorful this is.

  2. I wish I had found this last night – I ended up making a black bean, quinora, chickpea, garlic and olive pasta salad with rosemary and lemon dressing.

  3. I love that this doesn’t have mayo. Such a great light recipe.

  4. Me gusta. La comida saludable, y la kosher, gracias
