There’s nothing more fun to eat than long, twirly pasta!  This linguine pasta salad is a bright, tangy, and a fresh take on classic pasta salads. The fresh vegetables add flavor, and are so good tossed with an easy garlicky homemade pasta salad dressing.

I normally make pasta salads with medium or short pastas, but I couldn’t resist switching it up and using a longer, thicker noodle like linguine. It makes the perfect vehicle for the chopped veggies, so you get a delicious crunch in every bite.

One of the Best Vegetarian Linguine Recipes

This vegetarian linguine pasta salad is a simple way to get extra veggies in your diet. I’m all about making recipes plant-based when I can. Vegetarian cooking does NOT have to be bland, boring, or flavorless… It’s quite the opposite when done right. 

By building meals around vegetarian pantry staples and swapping in a few plant-based ingredients you can make easier meals for you and your family. I made a list of my 125 favorite vegan pantry ingredients that we use on a weekly basis.

What Are Linguine Noodles?

Linguine pasta is a long ribbon-shaped pasta, that is slightly flattened. The word linguine in Italian means little tongues, owing to it’s flat shape.

Linguine is traditionally used in dishes like pasta and clam sauce, and can be a great choice for creamy pasta sauces. I love using it in this pasta salad, as it’s fun to twirl and soaks up the vinaigrette dressing.

  • Linguine Pasta – I used regular durum semolina linguine pasta, but you can use a whole wheat or gluten free version if desired. Make sure you use one that fits in with your dietary needs.
  • Cucumber
  • Tomatoes
  • Bell Pepper – I used a yellow pepper for color, but you can add red or green if desired. 
  • Good Extra Virgin Olive Oil: I like to use this fruity olive oil which has a fantastic flavor.
  • Red Wine Vinegar: I used red wine vinegar for the marinade to give this dish a really nice bright Mediterranean flavor – for that, this red wine vinegar is my go-to!
  • Oregano: a spice I always put in my pasta salads!  This dried oregano has a bright and earthy flavor, and goes so well with the fresh crunchy vegetables.
  • Olives – optional, if you like them!
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Parsley

How Do I Make this Linguine Vegetable Pasta Salad?

  1. Boil a large pot of salted water, and cook linguine according to package. Drain and rinse noodles under cold water to stop them cooking. Set aside.
  2. Dice the cucumber and tomatoes, slice the peppers into fine bite-sized ribbons, chop the parsley, and add all veggies to a bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix the dressing ingredients together.
  4. Add the pasta, and dressing – toss well to coat all the ingredients together. Garnish with extra parsley and feta cheese if desired.
  5. For leftovers – I like to take a quart sized mason jar, fill half with pasta salad, and half with fresh spinach and enjoy for a quick and easy lunch!
