Rotini and Potato Salad

How about a delicious pasta salad? Let’s try Rotini and Potato Salad. This is a mix of cooked rotini pasta, boiled potato, tuna and hard-boiled eggs, and my go-to vinaigrette.

I love this salad as it is very filling. You can serve it for lunch, and it gives you a break from that lettuce salad you often grab for lunch. It also makes a great dinner, a change from the regular pasta and tomato sauce we like so much!

Total Cooking Time: 25 min
Serving: 2


  • 1 cup rotini pasta
  • 1 tomato, sliced
  • 2 medium eggs

  • ¼ cup My Go-To vinaigrette or your favorite salad dressing.
  •  Fresh cilantro leaves to garnish (optional)


  1. In a large pot of boiling water, add rotini pasta, eggs and a teaspoon of salt; cook until tender, about 15min.
  2. While pasta is cooking, peel the potato, and cut it into big chunks.
  3. Rinse potato chunks and put them in a large pot.
  4. Cover with water and add a teaspoon of salt.
  5. Cook potato over medium heat until just tender, about 15 min. Do not overcook the potato.
  6. When done, drain pasta and put eggs in a cold water to cool.
  7. Rinse pasta under running water, and pour it in a salad bowl.
  8. Peel egg, cut them into small chunks, and add it to the salad.
  9. Cut tomato, remove the seeds, and slice into chunks or thin slices.
