Three dairy-free & vegan pasta salad recipes

Summer barbecues are just about the least veg-friendly event imaginable. Between the pounds of meat on the grill and the egg- and dairy-heavy “salads,” it’s not uncommon to wind up with a plate full of nothing but raw veggies and hummus. If you’re ready to take matters into your own hands, why not bring a big batch of vegan macaroni salad? It’s super easy, and almost identical to the regular version.
