Avocado Whole Wheat Pasta Salad

Avocado Whole Wheat Pasta Salad
  • 1 (12 ounce) box whole wheat rotini pasta
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons white vinegar
  • lemon, juiced
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 avocados - peeled, pitted, and chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 large carrot, cut into matchstick-size pieces
  • 6 green onions, sliced
  • 1 stalk celery, sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh basil
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste


  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the rotini at a boil until tender yet firm to the bite, about 10 minutes; drain and run under cold water to prevent sticking.
  2. Whisk olive oil, vinegar, lemon juice, and honey together in a bowl until dressing is smooth.
  3. Mix pasta, avocados, green bell pepper, carrot, green onions, celery, garlic, basil, parsley, and cilantro together in a bowl. Drizzle dressing over pasta mixture and toss to coat. Add lemon zest, salt, and pepper to pasta salad. Serve at room temperature.
