Green Goddess Pasta Salad
As summer heats up, it’s only natural that taste buds turn toward cooling, crowd-pleasing cuisine. And while some chill-worthy options are more obvious than others (read: ice cream), there’s something to be said for cool, savory dishes that can temper the temperature of your main course.
We’re talking about tender-crisp veggies and delightfully chewy noodles. We’re talking about fresh, herby salad dressing. We’re talking about this recipe for Green Goddess Pasta Salad.
Starting with a sturdy base of Trader Joe’s Organic Brown Rice & Quinoa Spaghetti that’s cooked perfectly al dente, this pasta salad layers snappy haricots verts and blanched kale with crunchy slivered almonds for an array of teeth-tickling textures, and finally the whole thing is tied together with Trader Joe’s Green Goddess Salad Dressing. This salad sidekick offers fragrant notes of basil & chives, savory garlic & green onion, bright lemon juice, and tangy apple cider vinegar, ensuring flavorful zing in every forkful of pasta and veggies.
While other versions of this heavenly dressing are made with mayonnaise, sour cream, or egg yolks (or sometimes all three!), our Green Goddess Salad Dressing gets its characteristic creaminess from the addition of luscious, ripe avocados, and nary a dairy product in sight. This makes it a consummate crowd-pleaser for appetites of all kinds, a paragon of the block party potluck, sovereign of the summer smorgasbord.
Whether you use it to dip, drizzle, or marinate, Trader Joe’s Green Goddess Salad Dressing will help you keep your culinary cool all summer long. You’ll find 11 fluid-ounce bottles in our refrigerated case for $3.99.
