High Protein Greek Pasta Salad

Greek Pasta Salad
Spread the love!

As a child, I never liked pasta salad. Most of my experiences with pasta salad involved mayo and a creamy texture- which I never enjoyed. Eventually, I found vinaigrette options and fell in love. I created this pasta salad with meal prepping in mind, but this would be an excellent dish to bring to your summer cookout. It is so refreshing and colorful, guaranteed to impress any crowd.

With the addition of a plant protein pasta, this salad is a well-balanced, meatless meal that will keep you full for hours thanks to the protein and fiber content. This recipe was a huge hit when I first shared it on my Instagram page. I hope you enjoy it!
