Creamy Dressing:

  • ¼ cup mayo
  • ¼ cup greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • salt + pepper

Balsamic Dressing:

  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon mustard dijon
  • salt + pepper

Italian Dressing:

  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • ½ lemon juiced
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning


  • For each of the dressings, simply combine all the ingredients in a small mixing bowl and whisk until well combined.


The creamy dressing will yield 1 cup. The two oil-based dressings will yield about 3/4 of a cup. For all three dressings, the amount works well with about 8-10 ounces cooked pasta plus whatever mix-in ingredients you choose. But, some like more or less dressing on their pasta salad, so this is just my suggestion for serving (the way I like it!).
