23 Pasta & Noodle Salads That Are Potluck Superstars

September  4, 2017

Pasta, the workhorse of rent week and I-can’t-believe-it’s-8-o’clock dinners, is here to save the day again. This time, as the non-wilty, thoroughly-filling, people-pleasing potluck superstar: pasta salad.

The best part of pasta salad is its endlessly versatile, accommodating format. You can dress it up with feta, miso, or tuna, or toss in some olives or broccoli. It can emulate ~ traditional ~ salads with lettuce and greens, or embrace salad-in-name-only status with no-cook tomato sauce. Whether you plan on making a pasta salad to complement potluck mains, or combine flavors to make it the star of the show, we have the perfect pasta (and noodle!) salads for you.
