If you’re looking for a quick, easy, and delicious salad, this Italian Pasta Salad is a winner!
This is one of those versatile salads that you can easily make your own by using your favorite ingredients.
It takes minutes to prepare but the flavor will have people believing you spent hours making it!
I like to use Rotini pasta in this dish because I want a pasta that can hold the dressing.
It’s important that you taste dressing in every bite and Rotini is my go to pasta for that reason.
Penne would work as well but I wouldn’t use a macaroni noodle because I don’t like the way macaroni holds the vinaigrette.
Next, the veggies!
I use cucumbers, olives, pimento stuffed olives, red onion, pepperoncini, and artichokes.
Use whatever vegetables you like.
Zucchini would work well, and seeded and diced tomatoes would be an added bonus.
Lastly, the meats are Genoa Salami and Black Forest Ham!
If you don’t like meat, make it meatless by omitting it.
I make a meatless version all the time and it’s just as delicious!
