Pasta salad is the perfect warm-weather side dish! It’s so easy to make and with so many different options the possibilities are endless. But, rather than another basic pasta salad recipe, I am going to share one that is packed with amazing flavor… and it happens to include one of my all-time favorite things—HUMMUS!
The Sea Salt & Olive Oil Pasta Salad that you see above is one of my absolute favorites for a hot summer day. And being in the south, you guys know we got plenty more hot days ahead. So when you are craving something easy and super flavorful, this cool salad is ideal. You can double or even triple the recipe for leftover and/or no-cook lunches throughout the week.
Honestly, the hardest part of this recipe is boiling the pasta. But, I’ll let you in on a secret… those ready pastas that you simply microwave for one minute work like a champ. Just toss with a few veggies and you are on your way to an easy and tasty meal. And, for the ultimate flavor boost the pasta and veggies are tossed with an easy dressing made with HOPE Hummus!
