Vegan Pasta Salad makes for the perfect potluck side dish, filled with olives, peppers, red onion, roasted red peppers, grape tomatoes, and homemade Italian dressing.
Both kids and adults will love it! It’s colorful and flavorful. Kids tend to pick out meat and cheese. This recipe is naturally vegan and can also be made gluten-free by using gluten-free pasta. You could serve your favorite plant-based meat and cheese on the side for guests to add in if they’d like or even add in if you prefer.
INGREDIENTS FOR VEGAN PASTA SALAD
Rotini Pasta – To get a healthy mix of whole grains in we use whole wheat pasta in addition to the traditional tri-color pasta.
Roasted Red Peppers – We make our homemade roasted red peppers, they’re fresh and flavorful!
Green Bell Pepper – Peppers add a bit of crunch and color. You could also use other bell pepper colors.
Red Onions – These onions not only add a pop of purple, but they also give a strong sharp flavor that pairs well with salads.
Tomatoes – Grape tomatoes or Sprinkles Tomatoes are best. We halve grape tomatoes, sprinkles are smaller, but if choking is a risk for you we recommend slicing them as well.
Black Olives – These add a salty flavor and can be a bit strong in flavor from the brine. We always drain them and give them a rinse as well.
Italian Dressing – You could use your favorite store-bought dressing, but we highly recommend trying our homemade Italian dressing recipe if you have time!
