This vegan pasta salad is coated in a creamy homemade dairy-free ranch made with hemp seeds. It’s the best healthy pasta salad recipe that makes for the perfect picnic food or a delicious bbq side!
*I used chickpea pasta, but you can use any whole-wheat or gluten-free variety you prefer!
**Fresh minced garlic will oxidize the longer it’s stored and go bitter. If you don’t plan to eat your pasta salad right away, I recommend using 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder instead of fresh garlic in the dressing.
