Ranch Pasta Salad

  • Author: Brita Britnell

  • Yield: 10 servings 1x


Ranch Pasta Salad- this vegan pasta salad is ridiculously easy to make and perfect for potlucks and summer get togethers!


  • 12oz box of rotini pasta* (any pasta works here really)
  • 1 cup of chopped cucumbers
  • 1 cup of chopped carrot
  • 1 cup of chopped tomatoes (I used cherry tomatoes halved)
  • 1 cup of chopped broccoli
  • 11 1/2 cups of ranch dressing (see HERE for my homemade vegan version)
  • salt and pepper to taste (depends on the taste of your ranch really)


  1. Cook your pasta according to package instructions. When done, drain and run under cold water to help cool down the pasta.
  2. Add pasta to a large bowl and add all remaining ingredients. Mix until combined, add extra dressing if desired, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. ENJOY! Store in the fridge for a few days. I find that it dries out a bit but you can add a little extra dressing when serving.


*I’ve found that some boxes are 12 and some are closer to 16. I hate having a little pasta left in a box so I always make it all and then just add a little extra ranch if needed.
