I love pasta salad. I mean who wouldn’t? It’s carbs, veggies, and an irresistible dressing. I love that this recipe is not mayonnaise-base and it full of fresh Summer vegetables.

Here’s a break down of the ingredients:

  • Grape tomatoes: Great source of antioxidants. Used a combination of yellow and red for a colorful touch!
  • Peas: Contain some serious heart-healthy minerals and add a great texture element
  • Gemelli pasta: I love this fun, bite-size shape. Perfect for a chilled pasta salad like this one!
    note: can substitute with shells, farfalle (bowtie), rotini, macaroni, or any other bite-sized pasta
  • Homemade pesto: Pesto is beyond easy to make and this version is VEGAN!
