Dill Cold Pasta Salad

Last week was very busy with school starting and we enjoyed this transition time with football and food this weekend. I love that it is still summer for a few more weeks and am ready for a cool down in the weather.

This Vegetable Spaghetti salad is perfect to make any time of year for dinner or lunch and is great for a barbecue or picnic too!

How Do You Make Dill Pasta Salad?

It is easy! All you do is cut some fresh peppers, celery, and tomatoes, boil a pot of pasta and top with some salad dressing.

Cold Pasta Salad.

Tips for this recipe:

  • You can change up the noodles and use linguini, bowtie or any other type of pasta, including whole wheat pasta.
  • I like to use half of two different color bell peppers for added flair. You can also use mini peppers for this recipe.

This salad makes a great side dish, but you could also add some chicken or shrimp and make it a meal very easily!
