I shared this photo on my Instagram feed, and I stated that I would share the recipe on the blog, this pasta salad was so yummy, it's super easy to make, and is perfect for meal prepping. Trust me, it tastes as good as it looks, what I love about this recipe, is you can pretty much put whatever you have on hand to make this salad like cucumbers, chickpeas, and olives. This recipe also keeps well in the refrigerator and is perfect to bring to your next vegan gathering.

Are you a fan of pasta salads? 

  • 16 oz. pasta rotini (or your favorite pasta)
  • 1 bell pepper
  • 1 small onion

  3. To assemble the pasta salad, add the pasta, colorful veggies to a large serving bowl, pour the dressing over top and mix well to coat.
