This best Greek pasta salad is A+ and so good as a side dish, to bring to a potluck, or just for lunch.  I made it ahead of time for our 4th of July BBQ… and was actually tempted to hide it in our other fridge and not even share it for guests.  But I relented, and it was a huge hit!  I made it 2 days in advance, which gave the pasta salad just enough time for the flavors to marinate before serving.  I make a huge batch of pasta salad every other week for our lunches, and I have a feeling this will be my new Go-To recipe for Sunday night meal prep!

This Vegan Greek Pasta Salad is:

  • Refreshing
  • Tangy
  • Bursting with flavor
  • Healthy
  • Loaded with fresh vegetables
  • Vegan , vegetarian, and dairy free
  • A HUGE crowd-pleaser
  • Great for BBQs, parties, or potlucks

What makes this pasta salad different and so life altering from the rest?  The dressing!   Its homemade.  I’ve always used bottled dressings in the past and never thought much of it (which is silly because I make homemade dressing for my salads, so why not pasta?) but I didn’t have any Greek dressing on hand so I made one from scratch.  It makes ALL the difference in the world.  The fresh garlic, the vinegar, the herbs, and GOOD olive oil… I can’t believe that I hadn’t thought of making my own dressing sooner!
