by | Updated: December 3rd, 2016

Pasta salad is one of those easy, make-ahead meals, and it only requires a simple swap to make it gluten-free. If you’re used to dressing your gluten-free pasta salad with an Italian vinaigrette, try this fresh, flavorful and healthy spin.


  • 1/2 pound gluten-free pasta
  • 2 Tbsp. Greek plain yogurt
  • 1 tsp. honey
  • 1 tsp. grapefruit zest
  • 2 tsp. fresh grapefruit juice
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 pound fresh red grapes
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh basil
  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper


  1. Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and set aside to cool for 10 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients; gently toss to combine.
  3. Transfer pasta salad to four serving bowls.
