    Amazing pasta salad!! Loved the gluten free and dairy free dressing as well! Made for our summer BBQ and was such an easy nice cold side to serve on a hot summer day!! Also ate on the leftovers for a couple of days! So good and can’t wait to make again in a couple of weeks! 10/10 add this to your lineup!!
