This salad is very simple, literally anyone can make it! You can add any vegetables of your choice, I used flash steamed broccoli, peas and sweet corn kernels. Fresh cherry tomatoes, chopped red onion, Persian cucumbers and tricolored peppers add more crunch and nutrition to the salad.

What really sets this salad apart from regular pasta salads is the use of Colman’s Mustard which adds a nice complex flavor. I find that no other mustard matches up to the Colman’s brand probably because they have been making mustard for decades and clearly know how to make the best mustard. Did you know that Colman’s is one of the oldest existing food brands around? They have been making mustard since the 1800’s which is pretty awesome!

There are so many ways to use Colman’s Mustard and here are some of my favorite way to use this wonderful yellow mustard:

  •  Add some to your mac and cheese recipe to create an above average mac and cheese that tastes amazing.
  • Mix it into dressings, marinades and barbecue sauces. This veggie salad with mustard dressing is a nice example of how you can incorporate Colman’s Mustard to your dressing.
  •  Add the Dry Mustard Powder to your spice rub mix for super delicious chicken or steak.
  • Include mustard to your sandwiches, hotdogs or mix with horseradish, sour cream and minced onion for a nice pretzel dip.

I could name lots more ways to use Colman’s Mustard, but that could take all day! Hope you will get to try this veggie pasta salad with mustard dressing or try one of the suggestions above. Don’t forget to tag me and @ColmansUSA on Instagram when you make this dish. I always look forward to seeing how yours turns out.

  1. Coleman’s always reminds me of my granddad, every summer when we were in England I would have to take the sandwich orders at lunchtime and he always had a ham sandwich with mustard. Now I use it when I make chicken dishes to make the sauce and I also put some in my mac n cheese – the powder is brilliant for it!

    Can’t wait to try this recipe though, it looks delicious.

  2. The salad looks beautiful. I could definitely use something like that. And the mustard would add just the right counterpoint to the mayonaise. So it wouldn’t be too sweet.

  3. thats ideal for a light snack for me – especially as there is no meat and my god i eat a lot of it
    but the mustard……..it goes straight up my nose every time lol

  4. Summer always says pasta salad to me. Probably because I grew up going to potlucks at our local country church. Your version looks so good with the pretty veggies and mustard dressing. It would go great with anything. This one I can’t wait to try! x

  5. I love easy to create recipes. This has all the things we already buy so no going to the store for ingredients. Yum

  6. mmm looks yummy and healthy too! you can’t go wrong with a good, simple dinner that’s healthy for those busy weeknights.

  7. I think that the only thing that I can cook is pasta. SO for that reason I have tried every recipe but I never thought that I can use mustard as well. Have to try this!

  8. I have to give this pasta salad recipe a try! I have never added mustard in my pasta salad so this is really new to me. I will get the ingredients ready and fix myself a great new salad dish. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
