Pasta and Bean Salad Ingredients

This pasta and bean salad is protein-packed and it only uses a handful of ingredients.

  • Pasta: Use your favorite kind of pasta. I like using rotini or fusilli because their twisty shape helps the dressing stick to it.
  • Mixed Beans: Mixed beans are full protein and fiber which makes this pasta salad healthier than most. Skip the prep work and just use a can of mixed beans you find in the grocery store.
  • Cucumbers: Cucumbers add a nice crunchy texture to the salad. Use mini cucumbers or English cucumbers.
  • Store-bought Salad Dressing: Yes. You read that right. Store-bought dressing! This saves so much prep work and time. Any kind of store-bought dressing will work for this pasta and bean salad. But my recommendations would be the Kraft Greek Feta & Oregano Dressing or the Kraft Zesty Italian Dressing.
