How To Make Dill Pickle Pasta Salad

Ingredients needed

  • Rotini pasta or shells
  • Dill pickles
  • Cheddar cheese
  • Dill
  • Mayonnaise
  • Sour cream
  • Mustard
  • White vinegar
  • Granulated sugar

Quick tips for the recipe

  • This is a great recipe to make ahead but do not add the dressing until ready to serve. The pasta will soak up the dressing the longer it sits and overtime it can take away how creamy the salad is.
  • Make the dressing a day ahead. The dressing is really the key to salads. Any homemade dressing should sit in the fridge for at least a day for the best flavor.
  • For the cheese, I bought a block of cheese and diced it up myself into little bite sized cubes. This way I could control the perfect size cubes that I wanted for the salad.
