Dill Pickle Pasta Salad

Rated as 4.2 out of 5 Stars

"This is a tangy pasta salad that is quick to make and tasty to eat. It's great as a side dish or a light meal. I first made this for my husband and myself because it was too hot in our apartment to cook for any length of time and too hot to want a hot meal!"

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil; cook the rotini at a boil until tender yet firm to the bite, about 8 minutes; drain. Rinse in cold water until rotini are cold and place in a large bowl.
  2. While pasta cooks, mix mayonnaise, pickles, mustard, vinegar, sugar, pepper, celery salt, and garlic powder together in a bowl. Stir dressing into cold noodles until fully coated. Add additional pickle chunks to taste. Serve chilled.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • You can use whatever kind of pasta you have.
  • You can always put the noodles in the freezer for a couple of minutes to cool them faster.
