Cilantro Lime Pasta Salad

Guest recipe and blog by Emily Hill @wonderwhyimfat

Every Summer, I love to plant my own garden of vegetables and herbs. This year I am growing cilantro and if you’ve ever had cilantro in your garden, you know it grows abundantly! If cared for properly, it can grow year round depending on where you live (or if grown indoors). 

I wanted to find fun ways to use it in a variety of recipes because cilantro adds wonderful flavor and is also a good source of antioxidants. I love a good pasta salad in the warmer months – They’re always so refreshing and easy to make ahead. There is nothing better after a busy day than being able to dig into a pre-made healthy pasta salad.

For this recipe I added my favorite Just Thrive Probiotic to the dressing. It’s the easiest recipe companion to ensure good gut health for my family. I open the capsule and sprinkle it into whatever we’re eating that day. Because this particular Probiotic is odorless and tasteless, my family doesn’t even know it’s in there! After adding Just Thrive Probiotic to our daily routine, we have more energy, better digestion and overall just FEEL better. 

Some tips for this recipe- You can always stir in some cotija cheese for a nice salty addition. You may notice the pasta will absorb the dressing, so feel free to save some extra dressing to add when eating leftovers.  

Let's get started – I hope you love this  pasta salad as much as I do!
