I used whole wheat bow tie pasta for this recipe but you can use any shape pasta you like. Also, the dressing is dairy free. I was able to use the new Silk Plain Dairy-Free Yogurt Alternative 24 oz. This variety is simply the best. You can use it for anything really, parfait, smoothies, salad dressings…I think you will love it. This new yogurt is

  • 11 grams of plant-powered protein
  • Delicious taste and creamy texture
  • Free of cholesterol, dairy, lactose, gluten, carrageenan or casein
  • Non-GMO Project Verified
  • No high-fructose corn syrup

If you would like to make this recipe gluten free you can also use gluten free pasta. This recipe would work perfectly with it. Any type of pasta goes!

The salad dressing I came up with was really delicious. I happen to love anything with cilantro and avocados so I thought mixing them both together for the salad dressing would work well. I am thinking of making another yogurt dressing using pesto. I love pesto too so will see how that one turns out.

You can visit Silk’s website and get a coupon to try the yogurt for yourself. I am sure you are not going to be disappointed.

Also, you can take the Taste the Goodness challenge at Silk and let them know what you think about their new dairy free yogurts!

While this pasta salad with yogurt cilantro avocado dressing is very versatile, as you can add any veggies of your choice, I just pretty much used what I had on hand. Cucumbers, tomatoes, corn and a few fresh herbs. If you don’t like certain veggies you can tailor it to your liking so swap any ingredients you see fit.

I know spring is just around the corner and this recipe is great for it. The colorful veggies are very appetizing and the fact that you can eat it cold or at room temperature makes it rather convenient. You can bring this recipe to any gathering or pack it for your kids lunch box.

Well, I hope you get to make this easy pasta salad with yogurt cilantro avocado dressing. If you like avocados you are going to love this dressing. It is nothing but delicious.

Enjoy!
