Servings 4


  • 2 cups macaroni I love using @floatingleaffoods organic macaroni made with hemp oil 💚
  • 1 medium orange bell pepper chopped
  • 1/4 cup red onion diced
  • 1/2 cup Persian cucumbers chopped
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes chopped
  • 2-3 tbsp fresh dill chopped
  • 1/2 cup vegan mayo
  • 1 tbsp pickle juice
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper


  • Bring a large pot of water to boil with salt. Cook your macaroni to desired texture. I think al dente is best, around 7 mins.
  • Remove from heat, drain and rinse with cold water.
  • In a large bowl prepare all your veggies including peppers, red onion, tomatoes, cucumbers and dill.
  • Prepare your sauce. Mix together vegan mayo, pickle juice, dijon mustard, garlic powder, s&p.
  • Add cooled pasta to the veggies and mix in your dressing. Taste and add seasoning if desired. Viola! Store in the fridge for 1 week.
