Seasoned Pasta Salad
Tasty Pasta Salad with Veggies and Black OlivesThe star ingredient in this tasty pasta salad recipe: GOYA® Sazonador Total, a zesty blend of authentic Latin herbs and spices. Stirred into a lemon-mustard vinaigrette, it clings to the nooks and crannies of fusilli pasta spirals, adding a ton of low-sodium herb flavor in a flash.
A pasta salad is a terrific, easy side dish for a summer cookout or picnic. With GOYA® Sazonador Total, it tastes even better!

Choose the Perfect Pasta
In this Seasoned Pasta Salad recipe, we chose fusilli pasta because the dressing easily clings to the spirals. But if you don’t have fusilli on hand, reach for another type of pasta with mini nooks and pockets. We recommend bow ties, elbows and/or shells.
