When I was a kid I had a serious affinity for baby dill pickles.

In fact, my mom and dad had a hard time keeping baby dill pickles in the house. I could go through a jar of them in a day or two.

As an adult, my pickle cravings have only intensified, which is why I first made this creamy and delicious dill pickle pasta salad!

Easy Dill Pickle Pasta Salad

How to Make Dill Pickle Pasta Salad

To make this yummy pasta salad you’ll need the following ingredients:

  • 1 lb dry shell pasta
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon McCormick’s Salad Supreme seasoning
  • ⅛ teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 cups shredded Colby-Monterey Jack cheese
  • 2 cups sliced dill pickles
  • ½ cup dill pickle juice
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill weed

The pasta salad is really easy to put together when you have your ingredients prepped.

  1. Boil pasta; drain, rinse and place in large bowl.
  2. In a small bowl, mix mayonnaise, sour cream, dill weed, Dijon mustard, Salad Supreme, pepper, and pickle juice. Toss with pasta.
  3. Stir in remaining ingredients. Cover and refrigerate 2 hours before serving.

That tablespoon of McCormick’s Salad Supreme seasoning gives this pickle pasta salad a special little kick. If you’ve never used this seasoning mix before you definitely need to give it a try. I use it in a lot of my pasta salad recipes!

Also, one tip about making this dill pickle pasta salad is that the dressing will firm up a bit after chilling in the refrigerator. Sometimes I make a little extra dressing if I’m taking this dish to an event.

I pour the extra dressing on top and stir to combine just before serving. This isn’t totally necessary but it does help to loosen things up a bit!

As much as I love the crunch of those dill pickles, I also adore the creaminess of the dressing and the cheese.

I used to do cubed cheese in this salad but I find that I like it grated so much better. It really adds something special to this dill pickle pasta salad recipe!

  1. This looks amazing! I’ve never had a pasta salad with shells so I’m very excited to try it. Do you think if I used a different cheese – like cheddar – it would heavily alter the flavor of the recipe? Thanks for sharing, can’t wait to try it at home!

  2. I saw this in your newsletter and drooled ! I LOVE dill pickles, and this is an awesome recipe. I made it after you posted it, and really to me it was wonderful. I am going to make it for picnics. I think I could eat it daily!
