White Cheddar Pasta Salad is made with only six ingredients and comes together in little time! The pasta salad is a great addition to any spring or summer meal.
Do you ever find a snack that you really love and eat it every single day? For the past few weeks, I’ve been snacking on grape tomatoes and cucumbers every afternoon. I think it’s because I’m craving spring and summer flavors and can’t wait until the tomatoes start to ripen in my garden. I love the arrival of warmer weather and summer produce. To kick off the season of barbecues, backyard picnics and outdoor adventures, I’m sharing this white cheddar pasta salad recipe made with only six simple ingredients. Mix together the fresh ingredients in a bowl and bring it to your next dinner party or picnic to impress your guests.
For this recipe, I combined some of my favorite fresh spring flavors, including pasta, vegetables, cheese, greens and dressing. I’m sure you already know how much I love organicgirl greens. After all, I add them to one pot meals, soups, salads and more. Did you know that organicgirl also makes fresh salad dressing and freshly squeezed juices? The first time I tried the salad dressing I ate the entire bottle before I ever served it with salad. Pair the dressing with fresh vegetables for a quick and easy snack. Every afternoon for a week I dipped romaine heart leaves into the White Cheddar dressing. It is the best snack because it is light, refreshing and flavorful.
