Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta Salad

Does anyone else love a good pasta salad recipe as much as I do? I could eat a variant of pasta every day and be a happy man. Now, if only someone would invent a calorie-free version that tastes as delicious as the real thing.

Even though I’m a major fan of a classic pasta salad recipe (You can find my go-to recipe here.), I also enjoy developing creative flavor twists. This Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta Salad is my latest.

What’s in Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta Salad?

Of course, one of the yummy things in this pasta salad recipe is sun-dried tomatoes. It’s likely that l would love any recipe that contains sun-dried tomatoes. They are bite-size bundles of rich flavor that explode in your mouth.

Delicious Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta Salad Recipe #pastasalad #sundried #tomatoes #pasta #recipe #side This Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta Salad also contains:

  • artichoke hearts
  • feta cheese
  • cherry tomatoes
  • arugula
  • garbanzo beans (chickpeas)
  • fresh basil

Although this combination makes an incredibly tasty pasta salad, you don’t need to follow this recipe ingredient by ingredient. Feel free to mix things up and include what you love. Don’t like feta? Try goat cheese. Not a fan of garbanzo beans? Use diced chicken instead.

Because this Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta Salad is loaded with so much flavor, the dressing is super simple. Just mix together olive oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and a touch of sugar. (The sugar is optional. However, I think that bit of sweetness nicely counters the tartness of the lemon juice.)

Once you have all of your ingredients selected and chopped, toss them with the dressing, and your salad is good to go.

While it will still be delicious and fresh the next day, I recommend making this recipe a couple hours before serving. This will ensure that the arugula remains crisp.

And that, my friends, is my take on a Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta Salad. Again, if you’re looking for more out-of-this-world-delicious pasta salads, you can find all of my recipes here.
