A creamy pasta salad is one of those things that just seems to usher in the nice weather and spring feelings. It’s the perfect Easter side dish, and it transitions so well to summer cookouts and picnics. And luckily, this creamy ranch pasta salad is so easy to make gluten free; there’s only a couple of changes you need to make to the classic dish.

Making Ranch Pasta Salad Gluten Free

Pasta: Make sure you choose a good gluten free pasta. I’ve found brown rice pasta has good texture and tastes very similar to a typical wheat pasta noodle. I know the chickpea flour noodles are good too, plus they provide added protein!

Pickles: Not all pickles are gluten free. If they’re made with malt vinegar – which many brands are – then they contain gluten. Make sure the jar of pickles you choose is gluten free; a quick Google search will show you brands of pickles that are gluten free. I found them at every grocery store I looked at too.

Ranch Seasoning: The most classic brand you’re probably thinking of is in fact gluten free. Just make sure you check the package of whatever brand you’re buying, or make your own ranch seasoning. You’ll need 2 tablespoons worth.

Wildly Organic Mayonnaise: This is my favorite organic mayo! It’s creamy and tastes sooo good!

A Note on the Veggies

I used bell pepper, pickles and cucumbers, but you can add any other vegetables that you have on hand or particularly love. Some of my favorites: carrots, peas, and fresh broccoli.

Keeping the Pasta Salad Leftovers From Getting Dry

This creamy branch pasta salad makes a LOT, and I always have leftovers. But after a day or so in the refrigerator, the dressing tends to soak in and get pretty dry, which can be disappointing. To combat this, I set aside about ¼ cup of the dressing in a separate container when I make the pasta salad. Then, when I pull out the leftovers, I can add just a bit of the set-aside dressing to my plate to make it a fully creamy pasta salad again.

Eat the ranch pasta salad leftovers within 1-2 days for best texture and taste.
