Dill Pickle Pasta Salad is everything you love about dill pickles and cheese in a creamy pasta salad. Pickle lovers unite! This pasta side dish is perfectly paired with grilled chicken, burgers, and more!


  • 2 cups small dry pasta (about 8 ounces)
  • 1 cup chopped dill pickles
  • 1 cup cubed cheddar cheese
  • ¼ cup finely chopped green onion
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon dried dill
  • 2 tablespoons pickle juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste


  1. Cook the pasta according to package directions until it is cooked al dente. Drain and rinse in cold water.
  2. Add the pasta to a medium mixing bowl. Add the chopped pickles and cheddar cheese.
  3. In a small bowl whisk together the sour cream, mayonnaise, dill, pickle juice, and garlic powder.
  4. Add the dressing to the pasta.
  5. Stir everything together until it is all well-coated. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve right away.


I like to chop up dill pickle spears for this recipe instead of using already sliced dill pickles. The texture is crunchier when you chop up a whole dill spear. Extra sharp cheddar cheese is great in this recipe.
