Yummy Creamy Avocado Pasta Salad for Your Next Lunch

You know those days when don’t feel like cooking a big meal? This pasta salad with avocado dressing is perfect when you don’t have a lot of time, or you need a delicious snack for your next lunch. The buttermilk and avocado make the dressing nice and creamy, and the cilantro and lime give the salad a little pep.

Tip: If you are vegan, just leave out the buttermilk and feta. As a source of protein, you could use tofu instead. Plus, a dash of starchy pasta water makes the dressing extra creamy.

One serving of pasta salad contains about 420 calories, 52 g of carbohydrates, 25 g of protein and 17 g of fat.
