Why Gluten Free Pasta Salad Recipe?

I’ve been gluten free for years now and have had a hard time finding a gluten free pasta salad recipe that is delicious, until now! This recipe is also dairy free and soy free but if those aren’t concerns for you then you can adapt the recipe to fit your needs.

The only cooking involved are the gluten free noodles and every thing else you can customize as you’d like but I love the recipe as I laid it out.

Gluten Free Pasta Salad Recipe

Since we stopped eating gluten, dairy, soy, and egg we have been at a loss for summer salad recipes, until now! I found this recipe online and adapted it to be allergen friendly. It's delicious!!
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
Course Salad
Servings 2 Quarts


  • 1 box Barilla Gluten-Free Elbow Pasta prepared and cooled
  • 1 cup Soy-Free Vegenaise
  • 1 tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 1/2 tbsp Garlic Salt
  • 1 cup Cherry Tomatoes Diced
  • 1/2 bag Hormel Real Crumbled Bacon
  • 4 tbsp Green Onion Chopped


  • In a 3qt sauce pan or bigger, heat water on stove until boiling. Once boiling, add Barilla Gluten-Free Elbow Pasta and continue to boil for 7 minutes.
  • Drain water into sink and rinse with cold water, then drain again. Set aside.
  • In a small bowl, mix the Vegenaise, lemon juice, and garlic salt together.
  • Pour mixture over pasta and stir until the pasta is coated with the mixture.
  • Cut cherry tomatoes and green onions and add to pasta mixture, stir to combine.
  • Eat immediately or store in fridge for later use. This made 2.5 quarts, which for us, was enough for two meals plus some lunches.


This is the most delicious gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, and egg-free salad I’ve had yet! It’s creamy and the noodles are plenty hydrated so they don’t get hard as they have in some other recipes I’ve made. I highly recommend it!!

It’s often hard to find gluten free pasta salad recipes, especially ones that still taste great and are easy to make PLUS delicious when served cold. This is perfect for a picnic, BBQ, or just to have for lunch indoors too. I love making this in the summer and spreading it over two nights of meals as a side dish. Prior to finding this recipe and adapting it to be allergen-friendly, I had a hard time finding allergen-friendly pasta salad and really missed my ‘Suddenly Salads’ that I used to eat ALL the time before I discovered my food sensitivities. This recipe is a great alternative to those.
