Meal prep: You can make this pasta salad a few hours before serving. Keep it chilled in the fridge until ready to serve, and only add the dressing when serving to prevent it from getting soggy.

Cut the ingredients into different shapes: Cutting the veggies into different shades will add texture to your salad and makes it look more appetizing.

Pasta temperature: Ensure the pasta is cold or at room temperature before adding the rest of the ingredients. Otherwise, it will become soggy.
