Hi! Jen here again with a super easy and delish pasta salad recipe for you! I have a soft spot in my heart for pasta. Well, carbs in general. Carbs are my weakness. Probably more so than desserts!
My favorite kind of carbs are pasta. I didn’t grow up eating pasta salads. The only exposure I had to them when I was a kid, was at parties or potluck get togethers with friends. When I met my husband, I was fully introduced to the wide world of pasta salads. My husband’s mom is the pasta salad queen.
I remember going to his parents house to eat Sunday dinner and his mom would have a gigantic bowl of pasta salad just waiting for me to dig into. I got her recipe, and ever since then have loved making flavorful pasta salads. Like this Best Ever Pasta Salad and this Roasted Asparagus & Mushroom Pesto Pasta Salad – YUM!
This Southwestern Pasta Salad is easy, healthy and delicious. I like to use a healthier pasta and then add in lots of fresh veggies. The dressing is made using avocado, Greek yogurt and a little taco seasoning, amongst other flavorful ingredients. Blend it all together and then drizzle on the top or toss it all together with the pasta and veggies. It’s delicious as an addition to a potluck, picnic or just as a side dish. Your family will love this!
