This Simple Summer Pasta Salad is the perfect summery side dish for cookouts. Made with a homemade Italian dressing and tri-color rotini pasta for a pop of color, it’s easy to whip up in no time at all.


For the pasta salad:

For the dressing:


  1. Combine all salad dressing ingredients in a bowl and whisk rapidly to combine. (I also love pouring all of the salad dressing ingredients into a large mason jar and shaking everything up until it’s all properly mixed together.)
  2. Combine all of the pasta salad ingredients in a large bowl.
  3. Pour salad dressing on top of pasta salad and stir to combine.
  4. Serve immediately or store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator.
