This Easy Pasta Salad is a simple, traditional recipe that can be changed up with fresh vegetables but is always delicious! It is one of my favorite items to pack for lunch.

This Classic Pasta Salad is always a hit at barbecues, picnics, and parties too! Easy to make and also super economical too since the vegetables are fairly inexpensive, as is the spiral pasta.
