I am on the hunt for a fabulous and super simple pasta salad. Naturally, I turned to Pinterest, and I found so many amazing pasta salad recipes I want to try.

To keep things simple in our Simple BBQ menu, I stuck to a few guidelines.

  1. No more than 5-10 ingredients
  2. No more than 3-5 cooking steps
  3. Entire prep time cannot exceed 20-30 minutes


With those guidelines in mind, here are six simple salad recipes that would go perfectly with our Simple BBQ menu.

Delicious and Easy Pasta Salad by I Heart Naptime

Easy Pesto Pasta Salad by Wine and Glue

The Easiest Pasta Salad Ever by A Well Crafted Party

5-Ingredient Pasta Salad by Gimme Some Oven
