    Most of these pasta salad recipes have a very high sodium content. So for health reasons, I will not try any of those.

    If you are worried about salt content, you can always adjust recipes to suit your dietary needs. My mother-in-law has a very restrictive diet when it comes to salt in-take; I was pleasantly surprised to see that the basil and spinach salad is perfect even with the parm and salami mixed in. Thank you so much for posting these! I dearly needed a new summer salad to add to the mix!
