Versatile Pasta Salad- $2.47 recipe/ $0.31 serving


This is a quick, easy, delicious side dish. I don’t include the cost of dressing because there are virtually infinite possibilities. I use a simple homemade dressing of mustard, balsamic, olive oil, and a touch of brown sugar. A creamy ranch type dressing would make this perfect for cookouts or potlucks- or you could change the flavor entirely by using a fresh ginger carrot dressing.

Ingredients – makes 8 servings

1 box rotini ($1.00)

1 large cucumber ($0.34)

1 bell pepper ($0.37)

1 large tomato ($0.76)

1/2 cup dressing

Step by Step

Easy as can be. Just make your pasta, make your dressing, chop your veggies- and combine!
