REASONS YOUR PASTA SALAD SUCKS
Overcooking the pasta can make it mushy and unappetizing. Cook it al dente for the best texture.
Not seasoning the pasta water can result in bland pasta. Add salt to the water before cooking.
Rinsing the pasta after cooking can wash away the starch that helps the dressing adhere to the pasta. Skip the rinse and toss the pasta with a little oil instead.
Using too much dressing can make the salad soggy. Start with a small amount and add more as needed.
Not letting the salad chill before serving can result in warm, unappetizing pasta. Chill the salad for at least an hour before serving.
Using low-quality ingredients can affect the overall taste of the salad. Use fresh, high-quality ingredients for the best results.
Not adding enough variety to the salad can make it boring. Add different textures and flavors with ingredients like vegetables, cheese, and nuts.
