  • 16 oz rotini pasta cooked, drained, and rinsed in cool water
  • 2 cup whole dill pickles diced and reserve juice (about 5 large pickles)
  • 1 1/2 cup cheddar cheese cubed (or Colby-jack cheese)
  • 1 to 2 tbsp fresh dill chopped
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 tbsp dried dill
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp dried parsley
  • 2 tbsp dill pickle juice


  • In a small mixing bowl whisk together mayonnaise, sour cream, dried dill, onion powder, black pepper, dried parsley, and pickle juice to make the dressing.
  • In a large salad bowl add the cooled pasta, dill pickles, cheese, fresh dill, and dressing.
    Tip: Make sure your pasta is fully cooled before adding the other ingredients, or your cheese will start to melt.
  • Stir ingredients together until well combined.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least one hour to allow the flavors to blend.
