Dill pickle Pasta Salad!

Dill pickle Pasta Salad!

Hey Guys! 

Remember when we made homemade, CBD infused Dill pickles? Well, I am going to give you a great summer pasta salad recipe to go with those pickles!

This weekend I will be away camping, for a few days so I intend to bring this pasta salad along in the cooler! (And come back with new some, awesome Kalbra product shots & a brand new summer adventure post blog for next Friday!) So lets get right to it.

Ingredients

  • 1 box (16 oz) rotini pasta
  • 1/3 cup dill pickle juice (from the pickle jar)
  • 2 cups chopped baby dill pickles
  • 1 block (8 oz) Colby Jack cheese, cubed small
  • 1 small white onion, finely chopped

Creamy Dill Dressing

  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/3 cup dill pickle juice (from the pickle jar)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill (or 1 tablespoon dried dill)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Instructions

    • Cook pasta according to package directions. Don't forget to add some salt to the boiling water before adding the pasta. I add about 1 teaspoon, give or take.
  • Drain pasta and rinse with cold water. Add 1/3 cup of the pickle juice to the drained and rinsed pasta and let it sit while you prepare the rest.
    (Move the pasta from the colander into a mixing bowl and then add the pickle juice)
  • Chop the dill pickles, and cheese into small cubes/pieces. Finely chop the white onion.
  • Drain the pasta again that was sitting in the pickle juice. Add it to a large bowl along with the chopped pickles, cheese, and white onion.
  • In small bowl, combine all the dressing ingredients and pour over the pasta salad. Stir everything together to combine well. Salad can be eaten right away but I prefer it cold, and if you do too, then cover it and refrigerate it for 1-2 hours.
  • I would recommend not making this too far ahead of time. For best results serve this salad within a few hours of making it. Either right away or after the refrigeration time. Leftovers do keep well in the fridge (are still delicious) but the dressing thickens up and it's not as "creamy" as when you first make it).

There we have it! simple, and DELICIOUS recipe for all us pickle fans out there! This was a new twist on pasta salads and was excited to find and share with you, and using our CBD infused pickles just gives it that added healthier edge!
