Broccoli Pasta Salad Recipe

In this post I’ll be sharing a simple Broccoli Pasta Salad Recipe.

Super easy, super delicious! I love “cool” side dishes when the temperatures start to rise. This one is perfect as a side dish to your meal or great to take to a potluck dinner or barbecue.

Fresh broccoli and rotini pasta are combined in a tangy flavorful dressing. This simple side dish recipe can be made ahead and chilled until ready to serve.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound of Pasta, such as Rotini or Bowtie
  • Fresh Broccoli Florets 
  • Onion, diced
  • Mayonnaise
  • Sour Cream
  • Lemon Juice
  • Creole Mustard
  • White Vinegar
  • Salt
  • Cracked Black Pepper
  • 1.5 – 3 teaspoons of Pickled Diced Jalapenos, depending on how spicy you like it
  • 1Dried Dill
  • 1/4 teaspoon of Sugar, granulated

Broccoli Pasta Salad Recipe

 
Bring enough water to a boil to cook pasta. When water is boiling, add pasta and cook for 10 minutes. The last 5 minutes of cooking throw your broccoli florets in with the pasta to cook.
 
While the pasta and broccoli cook, in a large mixing bowl add all wet ingredients, onion, jalapenos and seasonings. Mix well.
 
Once pasta and broccoli are done, drain well and rinse with cool water until it’s cooled. Make sure it drains well.
 
Add to the dressing mixture in the mixing bowl and stir to combine.
 
You can serve immediately or chill in the refrigerator. If you chill it in the fridge, take it out 15 to 20 minutes before serving.
