Bells & Bows Pasta Salad

Sticking with the BBQ theme of yesterday’s Carrot Dogs . . . you and your friends/family will love this pasta salad! We kept buying a similar version at our local (and favorite) health store, and decided to start making it ourselves. Make sure you get bowtie pasta though . . . it makes a difference 😉 and bonus points if they’re mulitcolored.

Bells & Bows Pasta Salad Ingredients

Ingredients

-1 box bowtie pasta

-Green onion, diced

-1 yellow bell pepper, diced

-1/2 Cup vegan mayo

-3 Tablespoons sunflower seeds

-3 Tablespoons pumpkin seeds

-2 teaspoons dill *feel free to use fresh! I did for a while but couldn’t use it all & it would go bad*

-1 teaspoon garlic powder

Directions

-Cook pasta according to package instructions. Drain & rinse with cold water. Set aside

-Combine all of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl & mix well. Add the pasta when it is completely cooled. Mix well until all of the ingredients are combined

-Place in the fridge until ready to serve. Make sure you give it a few stirs before serving!

Tips

-If the pasta salad is a little dry when you take it out of the refrigerator, add a little bit more mayo 1 Tablespoon at a time until you reach your desired consistency

-Feel free to play around with the amounts you use for the ingredients. This is how we like it, but you can add more/less of any ingredient
