Patchwork Quilt Pasta Salad

This is one of the best tasting pasta salads I have ever had. My family and in-laws love it and I can never make enough. You can change or substitute the ingredients in the salad if you'd like to. This salad is best when prepared a day ahead.

Light Spaghetti Salad

Rating: 4.76 stars
I had this at a family reunion. Several years later I was wanting this and played around until I came up with this recipe. I am always asked to bring it to potlucks at work.

Mandarin Chicken Pasta Salad

Rating: 4.55 stars
I had this at a party and couldn't get it off my mind. It's a fruity Asian chicken salad that even my family's picky eaters enjoy. I bake my own chicken for more flavor, which adds to the prep time, but pre-cooked or canned chicken will also work just fine.

Rating: 4.33 stars
This is a good salad for a hot day.

Marinated Macaroni Salad

Rating: 4.38 stars
This is an excellent macaroni salad that everyone in my family has made over the years, and now I make. We have this with dinner at least once a week or every two weeks. It's a hit with everyone, as there's ketchup and sugar in it for the kids. Just try it; you'll LOVE it!

Mediterranean Orzo Salad

Rating: 4.91 stars
This light and refreshing cold pasta salad is loaded with the flavors of the Mediterranean, and pairs well with grilled proteins, such as fish, pork, chicken or steak. If you make this in advance, reserve a bit of the dressing to add right before serving, as the pasta has a tendency to soak up the dressing as it sits over time.

No Mayo Easy Pasta Salad

Rating: 4.17 stars
A friend of mine showed me how to make this. It's incredibly EASY and you'll have so many people asking for the recipe! This is also a great pasta salad if you're looking for something without mayo. Add or delete vegetables as you desire!

Couscous and Cucumber Salad

Rating: 4.14 stars
Encourage guests to squeeze the juice from the lemon wedges on to the salad.

Pasta Salad in a Jar

Rating: 5 stars
Whether you're packing a picnic or just an office lunch, this Mason jar meal not only helps with portability but also portion control. Starring Three Bridges® Organic Spinach and Cheese Tortellini, colorful veggies, and greens, the final product is definitely Instagram-worthy. Store in the refrigerator for up to a week. When it's time to eat, just shake well and serve!
