A Dairy-Free Version Of Traditional Pasta Salad

It's football season and pasta salad is a popular choice to bring to a game party because it's simple and you can eat it cold or at room temperature. But this year if you want to cut down on dairy, try using vegan mayonnaise, or Vegenaise, a dairy-free, eggless mayonnaise alternative. Mix it with cold cooked pasta and some veggies and you're good to go. Try Vegenaise today; once mixed into the salad, you won't be able to tell the difference!

Excellent!!!!!! Didn't have to change a thing. I soaked my sundried tomatoes in olive oil.
