Tips for Making a Vegan Macaroni Salad
- Taste as you go. Taste the dressing, taste the salad ingredients, and taste the final product. You may want more or less sugar, red onion, etc.
- Salt your pasta water! I’ve noticed that most pasta products fail to mention this on their directions for cooking the pasta, but it’s very important. Pasta soaks up the salt as it cooks. It’s important to season at every step in cooking.
- I also add a splash of olive oil to my pasta, because brown rice pasta loves to stick together. That’s purely optional, but I find that it helps.
