Lemony Dill Salmon Pasta Salad

Most pasta salads have a mayonnaise base, which I thought was too heavy for a salmon pasta salad. I swapped in a vinaigrette of sorts, with just a dusting of freshly grated Parmesan cheese for a touch of indulgence. It’s the perfect way to use any leftover salmon.



Step: 1

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add shells and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 9 minutes.

Step: 2

Combine oil, shallots, lemon juice, capers, dill, lemon zest, garlic, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Stir to combine. Add in the flaked salmon. Mix to incorporate.

Step: 3

Drain cooked pasta and add to the salmon mixture. Toss to combine. Refrigerate before serving, at least 30 minutes. Top with freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
