When I first had the idea to make this, I had regular pasta salad in mind. I had chickpea pasta on hand so I decided to test it out and it turned out so tasty. It contains a lot of protein, healthy fats, and delicious crunch from fresh vegetables. Lastly, a creamy lime dressing completes this pasta salad and adds incredible flavor.

This dish is one of the easiest pasta salads you can make. The steps in making this pasta salad are: cooking chickpea pasta per package instructions washing and chopping a few vegetables making easy creamy lime dressing mixing all ingredients together

This pasta salad is a cold salad. As a result, make sure your chickpea pasta has cooled completely before mixing it in with the rest of the ingredients. You can speed up this process by running it under cold water after the chickpea pasta has cooked. Not allowing the chickpea pasta to cool will result the avocado mayonnaise to melt, leaving you with a soggy instead of a creamy pasta salad. After cooking the chickpea pasta, all there is left to do is mix all the ingredients together. I found that refrigerating this pasta salad for at least 1 hour before serving resulted in the best flavor.

Storing your pasta salad. Place pasta salad in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 2 days. Do not freeze or leave at room temperature.

Can I double the recipe? Yes! You can double, triple, or quadruple this recipe. Don’t make more than can be eaten in 2 days because this pasta salad can’t be frozen.
