Stephanie Melchione Will Help You Rediscover the Magic of Pasta Salad

Pasta salads are a versatile and refreshing dish that puts a healthy twist on our favorite comfort food. Stephanie Melchione can’t get enough of them, and she shared quite a few recipes for tasty, filling, and nutritious pasta salads on her food blog The Cozy Cook.

Greek Pasta Salad

Greek salad became one of the beloved Mediterranean classics over the years, and it’s usually made with tomatoes, cucumbers, onion, feta cheese, and olives. If you want to make the original recipe even more delicious, pasta is all you need!

Tortellini Pasta Salad

If tortellini happens to be your favorite pasta variety, you have to try this salad that puts it front and center. In addition to cheese-filled tortellini, you’ll also need such Italian favorites as salami, mozzarella, spinach, peppers, and olives to copy this recipe.

BLT Pasta Salad

BLT is one of the most iconic sandwiches in the world, and it’s named after its three main ingredients – bacon, lettuce, and tomatoes. Melchione decided to put a healthy twist on this American classic and ditched all the carbs to turn it into a salad.

Chicken Pasta Salad

If you want your pasta salad to be as filling as it gets, adding some marinaded chicken seared in bacon drippings to the mix will get you there.
