Cucumber Pickel Pasta Salad

Hi there. Summertime equals outdoor time. And outdoor time calls for enjoying relaxing summer picnics. I remember my growing up days with my parents enjoying the summer break and picnic in a park.

A relaxing moment spent with my parents is something I still cherish every day.

Today I am sharing a pasta salad recipe which is good for such memorable family picnics. 


Since we are talking about picnics, carrying a delicious meal to enjoy is a must-have. I made this pasta salad since it’s to make assemble and carry.  I have a genuine crush on pickled cucumbers. I literally survived on those during my pregnancy.

To my surprise, I have passed that fondness for dill pickles to my daughter too. She loves to munch on those.

So I have mixed dill pickle with pasta and added some vegan mayonnaise. To give it a crunch and sweetness I have added an apple to this salad.

The combination of tart flavor from the pickle and sweet from apple makes this salad absolutely irresistible for both little ones and grown-ups.

Salad Dressing-001

This salad goes well with any grill recipes. It can be a great light lunch option too. I made this recipe keeping my 3-year-old in my mind.

So I haven’t added any chilies or paprika to it. But you all can add those too while serving grown-ups. This is one delicious as well as nutritious pasta salad which kids as well grown-ups would enjoy together.

For enjoying this salad outdoors, pack the salad ingredients and salad dressing in a cold box. Just add the dressing to the pasta and enjoy. This pasta salad is a great lunch-box option too for kids and grown-ups. 

Let’s go through the recipe.
