Notes

Dill Pickle Salad Recipe Tips

  • Add in 1- 2 teaspoons of olive oil and toss to prevent the pasta from sticking together.
  • Short on time? Stick the cooked pasta inside your freezer to cool it down faster.
  • I used Farfalle pasta, but any pasta shape works for this recipe. Or make trying making this Dill Pickle Salad using whole wheat pasta or gluten free pasta instead.
  • To make my dill pickle pasta salad healthier, I made the dressing using half fat mayo. But if you prefer, you can make it with regular mayonnaise.
