  • 10 oz spirelli pasta
  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened coconut or soy yogurt
  • 1 English cucumber
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons freshly chopped dill
  • 1 red onion, cut into thin strips
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • black pepper, to taste


  • Cook the pasta according to the instructions on the package. Rinse with cold water after cooking.
  • Thinly slice the cucumber and cut the red onion into thin strips. 
  • Finely chop the dill and mince the garlic. 
  • Place all ingredients for the sauce into a small bowl and stir until well combined. 
  • Place all of the ingredients in a large bowl, add the sauce, and toss to combine. Serve immediately or store in the fridge for later. I think it tastes best when it sits for about 30-60 minutes after adding the sauce. 


  • Be generous with the freshly chopped dill. It gives the pasta salad the perfect flavor. 
  • If you don't like crispy raw onions, you could leave them out. Or you could sauté the red onion strips before adding them to the salad (let them cool down first).
  • I highly recommend to use freh dill for this recipe as it really makes a flavor in taste. 
  • Stored in an airtight container in the fridge, it will last up to 5 days.
