Pasta & Broccoli Salad with Creamy Lemon Dressing Happy Monday! The days just fly by don’t they..

Pasta & Broccoli Salad with Creamy Lemon Dressing

This pasta salad is made with fresh grape tomatoes (you can also use cherry tomatoes or just regular tomatoes chopped up), broccoli, black olives, and pasta of course.

Pasta & Broccoli Salad with Creamy Lemon Dressing

I topped it with a fresh homemade creamy lemon dressing. Have you ever heard of a creamy lemon dressing? I made this dressing today and boy it was delicious. It’s light, creamy and packed with an amazing lemon flavor.

I know homemade dressing might sound hard but it’s really easy to make. Whisk all the ingredients and your done! Didn’t I tell you it was going to be easy πŸ™‚

Pasta & Broccoli Salad with Creamy Lemon Dressing

Okay let’s get started cooking! First your going to want to boil some water and cook the pasta for 5-8 minutes or until it’s nice and soft; not to soft though because it will get sticky, trust me..

While the pasta is cooking go ahead and boil the broccoli as well but for no more than 1 minute. After you have drained the pasta and broccoli combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and pour some of that nice and creamy lemon dressing!

  1. Where do we find a recipe for your creamy lemon dressing?
    So many ads, I can’t even get to the main recipe! Sounds Cool.

  2. This pasta salad looks amazing! And that lemon dressing is the perfect finishing touch! πŸ™‚ Pinned!

  3. Love the combination of this pasta salad! The dressing sounds amazing, too! Pinned!

  4. This is my kind of pasta salad! I love that it is stuffed with so many veggies! And that the dressing is tangy as opposed to sweet. Nothing weirds me out more than sweet pasta salad dressing.

  5. What a lovely light spring lunch!! Love all of the fresh veggies.
