17 Pasta Salads That Will Be a Hit at Your Next BBQ

Sharing is caring!

Looking for a new recipe to bring to your next BBQ? These 17 easy Pasta Salads are guaranteed to be a hit at your summer parties!

17 Pasta Salads

It’s officially BBQ season.

And the 4th of July is right around the corner too!

You know what that means. It’s time to fire up the grill, and load up on those side dishes. I don’t know about you, but I really love the side dishes — and especially the pasta salads!

So today I’ve gathered together some really great pasta salads from some of the best food bloggers around to share with you, and of course I’ve included a couple of my own tried and true favorites as well. Whether you’re looking for a new twist to an old classic, a healthy option, or something completely new to you,  I think you’ll find something here.

I’ll be making my way through all of these this summer. I’m thinking I’m going to start with the Jalapeno Popper Macaroni Salad (I have a love of all things spicy) and the Dill Pickle Pasta Salad (due to my obsession with pickles). What about you…which will you try first?

If you’re hosting a BBQ or two this year, you may also want to check out these Fruity Summer Cocktails, Sangria recipes for summer, or these salad recipes perfect for your next potluck!
