Cold Pasta Salad on a hot summer day…YES PLEASE!!! This Vegan Pasta Salad is perfect for a cold lunch and the dressing is completely OIL FREE and gluten free! This dish is perfect for picnics, big gatherings, and fun summer bbqs!

Can I use other veggies?

Of course! These are my favorite veggies to add in my salad, but feel free to add as many veggies of your choice. I also LOVE adding banana peppers and arugula, but didn’t have any on hand =)

What’s the best pasta to use?

My favorites are GF rotini, bowtie, or penne for this recipe

What if I want the pasta to be a bit more creamy?
