Gut Healthy Probiotic Pasta Salad

Pasta salads have been a popular go to side dishes for get-togethers with friends and family. But they aren't always the healthiest, right?

Well, like anything, it depends on the ingredients. Many pasta salads contain pasta from bleached flour that has a high glycemic index. Also, they are commonly made with store-bought dressings made with vegetable and seed oils that are highly inflammatory. On a flavor note, pasta salad can be mushy, bland and boring. 

What if we told you we have a gluten free, gut-friendly, healthy pasta salad recipe for you that you'll be proud to serve?

We got it and guess what? It's time to bring back the pasta salad!

Tossed with our favorite gluten free pasta and plenty of vegetables, we're including two dressing options to choose from, each made with a pickle juice as a base. 

Our gut friendly pasta salad is great addition to any meal, and it takes less than 30 minutes to make.

Pro Tip: You can easily kick up this side dish into a full meal by adding protein such as grilled chicken or salmon. We love mixing in even more vegetables like asparagus, peas, chopped red onion or diced cucumbers. You can make it more like a Greek salad like by adding feta cheese.
