Pasta Salad

Serving Size – 8-10 servings

Cook Time – 20 minutes


  • 1 16 oz bag of pasta (I use gluten free brown rice)
  • 1.5 cup vegan mayo (I love vegenaise from Follow Your Heart)
  • 1/4 purple onion
  • 1/2 cup of pimentos
  • 1.5 cup of sweet peas (If frozen, be sure to thaw beforehand, I use canned sweet peas)
  • generous dash of smoked paprika
  • dash of salt (to your taste)


  1. Boil your pasta (follow instructions on the bag). Once it’s ready be sure to rinse your pasta with cold water to cool it off. Set aside.
  2. Chop up the purple onion into small pieces.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, add your cooked pasta and all other ingredients. Mix it all up and taste test for more salt/smoked paprika.
  4. Be sure to store covered in fridge until ready to serve.
  5. Enjoy!
