For a successful pasta salad, al dente cooking must be respected as well as the refreshment step (pass the pasta under cold water), which allows to remove the excess of starch and to obtain pasta not sticky.

You can even prepare them to advance: cooled and added with a drizzle of olive oil, they are placed in the refrigerator.

The choice of pasta is also important: prefer short formats (farfalle, fusilli, penne...) best suited to be mixed with other ingredients in a large bowl.
