Lemon Dill Pasta Salad

So, I went into my kitchen today to make this, and my roommate Susan was already creating something nearly identical for today’s potluck.  She graciously let me make a dressing and we combined forces for this delicious pasta salad – a great summertime dish.

This is a mix-and-match dish, an empty-your-fridge salad.  You can really add whatever you like to some macaroni or bow tie pasta, but here is what Susan had in mind…


  • 1 Bag of Pasta (macaroni or bow tie work great)
  • 1 Can of Salad Beans
  • 1 Corn on the Cob, stripped (a can of corn will work too)
  • 1 Red Onion, diced
  • 1 Box of Cherry Tomatoes, halved
  • 1 Stalk of Celery, chopped
  • Arugula
  • 1 Green Pepper, diced
  • 1/3 Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1/4 Cup Fresh Dill, minced (1.5 Tablespoon of dried dill works too)
  • Juice of 1 Lemon
  • Zest of 1 Lemon
  • Salt & Pepper to taste


Step 1

While the pasta cooks, prepare all the vegetables.

Step 2

In a bowl, mix together the oil, dill, lemon juice and zest, and salt and pepper.

Step 3

Combine everything in a large bowl and serve warm or cold.
