Vegan Asparagus Pasta Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette

Summer and Spring Recipe You’ll Love!


Spring has arrived! Vegan asparagus pasta salad with balsamic vinaigrette is calling you all! This vegan asparagus pasta salad would be a wonderful side dish or meal to serve during the summer and spring months. One of the reasons you’ll enjoy this pasta salad is that it’s so simple and adaptable. They’re easy to make ahead of time and go with almost any meal, especially for special occasions like barbeque parties, potlucks, or picnics.

Yes, this pasta salad is dre nched in balsamic vinaigrette, which really is likely my all-time favorite vinaigrette! It’s fantastic. The plant-based ingredients for this pasta salad are basic: asparagus, strawberries, penne or rotini pasta, arugula or baby spinach, and a drizzle of olive oil.

Of course, feel free to adjust the recipe based on what you have on hand and your favorite plant-based ingredients. To make it even more spring-like, add some arugula or baby spinach, peas, and a pinch of lemon zest!

You can’t go wrong with this!

Vegan Globetrotter Tips

  • You can easily swap the penne pasta with rotini pasta to make a gluten-free version.
  • Don’t like to use arugula? Instead, use baby spinach.
  • You can add peas, and a pinch of lemon zest to make it more spring vibes.
  • You can drizzle balsamic vinaigrette over the vegan asparagus pasta salad to add even more flavor. I recommend making your own balsamic vinaigrette because the store-bought one has a lot of oil and is usually not vegan.
  • This pasta salad might also be made with a mix of white and green asparagus.
  • This salad tastes best when served freshly. By keeping it in the fridge for 2-3 hours, the strawberries will absorb the dressing quickly and go stale.
