In this Gluten-Free Italian Pasta Salad, the ingredients such as fresh basil, parsley, garlic, cherry tomatoes, olive oil, fresh lemon juice and bocconcini, are making this a beautifully flavoured light pasta salad.

Without question, this is one of my favourite pasta salad dishes. And no wonder, the entire dish is made with fresh ingredients. To give this recipe an Italian flair, be sure to use a good quality of bocconcini cheese.

Marinated Gluten-Free Italian Pasta Salad

 For the salad to have that incredibly intense flavour, the pasta is marinated with fresh ingredients. The herbs and garlic play a significant role in this Italian pasta salad. They set to the tone of freshness.

This gluten free pasta salad is light because the vinaigrette is made with only olive oil and fresh lemon juice—no heavy mayo or cream dressing in this healthy salad.

What we love about this gluten-free Italian pasta salad?

This salad is served at room temperature. This is especially important when you are entertaining and need the extra room in the refrigerator. If you are serving the pasta the same day, you can keep it on the counter until you are ready to eat.

When the salad is made a day in advance, then it needs to be brought to room temperature before serving. I would also like to mention that this gluten-free pasta salad is always better the next day. The flavours develop, enriching the pasta even more.

In this recipe, I used gluten-free spaghetti made out of quinoa and rice. But feel free to use any shape of pasta, but stay away from 100% corn pasta because it takes away from the fresh Italian flavour.

This dish is especially popular during the summer months because it does not need refrigeration. I hope you enjoy this really tasty Italian pasta salad.
