4 Ingredient Pasta Salad

July 28, 2017

Who doesn’t love a good pasta salad? I know that I love one that is quick and easy to make. Salads are my go to for the summer because it’s so hot and I find myself eating at least 3 different salads a week. Whats your favorite summer salad?


  • 1 Cucumber
  • 1 Tomato
  • 3 Cups Pasta (I used rotini)
  • ¾ Cup Italian Dressing
  • Salt and Pepper (optional)


  1. Boil your pasta until it’s cooked through. Strain and run cold water over the top of it. Set aside.
  2. Peel your cucumber. Chop both the cucumber and the tomato into large chunks.
  3. Place your tomato and cucumber in a bowl with the dressing and mix well.
  4. Add your pasta to the bowl and mix well again. Sprinkle with salt and pepper if desired.
  5. Chill for about an hour if desired.

    Love Pasta, and this salad looks so enticing. I would add a tinge of lemon along with the salt and pepper to make it a little more tangy.

    This is my kind of pasta salad. I enjoy pasta salad but it is time consuming. You just let me off the hook.
