This balsamic pasta salad has quickly moved up to the top of my insanely good pasta salad list.

And, considering we practically live on pasta salad in the summer, that’s saying something!

If you are a fan too, here are a few other yummy pasta salad recipes:

With summer barbecue season in full swing, you can easily whip this salad up in about 30 minutes to bring with you.

Plus, it tastes even better made the night before so everything blends together.

Just add a little extra dressing before serving. Enjoy!

How to Make Balsamic Pasta Salad

Boil the pasta according to the directions on the box. We love Barilla bow ties for this.

Place the boiled pasta into a large bowl. Check out this super cool salad bowl with servers that I just ordered.

Isn’t the blue and white so pretty?

Add olives, tomatoes, mozzarella pearls, parmesan & salami slices. Is your mouth watering yet?

This is one of those salad recipes that you can alter with your favorite ingredients.

For example, I’ll omit the olives when I make this for my sister’s house, as she is not a fan.

If you would rather make your own this balsamic vinaigrette is a favorite.

That sounds soooooooo yummilicious. My Mom makes her own balsamic vinegar so I'm always on the lookout for more ways to incorporate her divine mix in our meals
