Cooking Time: O'dang Chickpea Based Dressing for Tasty Vegan Pasta Salad

Mix a delicious pasta salad to accompany your favorite main dishes or to pack and take along for spring and summer picnicking. O'dang Foods has a Classic Mediterranean dressing that is the perfect ingredient for a Vegan Pasta Salad recipe that uses lots of healthy ingredients.

Our readers will like to know that 4/21 is National Chickpea Day. Chickpeas, also known as garbanzo beans, have been grown in Middle Eastern countries for thousands of years and they have become very popular in meals today. They have a naturally nutty flavor, are low in calories, and provide a great source of vitamins, minerals, and fiber. O'dang creatively uses chickpeas as a base in all of their tasty condiments.

In addition to the Classic Mediterranean dressing, O'dang's dressings include Greek Tzatziki, Roasted Red Pepper, Honey Mustard, Balsamic Feta, Lemon Caesar, Garden Herb Ranch, and Southwest Ranch. They also have an egg-free mayo in the flavors of Cucumber Dill, Lemon Garlic, and Roasted Red Pepper.
