Should I Refrigerate The Pasta Salad?
If you leave the pasta at room temperature for more than 4 hours, it will become unsafe to eat. To prevent this, you should refrigerate the pasta salad until you’re ready to serve it. So please don’t skip this step; it is very important.

To preserve the pasta salad, place it in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. It is no longer consumable after that, and if stored at room temperature for more than 4 hours, you shouldn’t eat it.
