The salad is incredibly easy to make and is loved by adults and kids. Crunchy and creamy, refreshing and delicious, made with only a few ingredients. I like to cover my Coleslaw Pasta Salad in Ranch dressing and also to add crunchy cucumbers. Have you ever wondered what is the history of coleslaw? I never knew that there are so many versions in different countries.

I am a huge fan at how easy this salad is to make, finished with some dill for extra flavor. I am a huge fan of time-saving meals. I like to make this salad one day ahead, and I am happy that it stays crunchy! I usually make a huge bowl so I have lots of leftovers for my hungry kid, that adores this Crunchy Coleslaw Pasta Salad.

Tips & Tricks To Make The Perfect Ranch Coleslaw Pasta Salad :

  • You can use your favorite creamy dressing in this salad. Blue Cheese dressing and Ranch are great options.
  • If you want to make the salad lighter, you can use an yogurt based dressing or tzatziki sauce.
  • Don’t skip the cucumbers, they add a nice crunch.
  • If you make the salad ahead of time, add the cucumbers before serving, so they don’t release extra water into the salad.
  • You can also add crunchy radish, diced green bell pepper, diced celery and red onion.
  • For a sweeter twist, you can add fresh corn from the cob.
  • The salad tastes great garnished with dill, but you can skip it, if you are not a fan.
  • You can add chicken or chopped eggs for extra protein.
