Our family enjoys trying new salads, and have discovered some delicious ones along the way. One of my sister-in-laws gave me this recipe and last night I made it. (If you're reading this Emma, Thank-you so much for sharing) Since it has to marinade overnight I didn't get to taste it until today. I loved it, my husband asked for seconds which is always a good sign, the girls didn't care for the olives, and Sailor emphatically does not care for it at all.
1 box (16 oz) medium shell pasta
4 oz. hard salami, cubed
6 oz. sliced pepperoni, quartered
12 cheese sticks, halved and cut in 1/4" pieces
3 medium tomatoes seeded and chopped
1 bell pepper chopped
1/2 cup sliced ripe olives
1/2 cup sliced stuffed olives
1 cup Zesty Italian salad dressing
1 tsp. oregano
Cook pasta shells according to directions on box. Rinse in cold water and drain. Place in a big bowl then add your salami, pepperoni, cheese, olives, tomatoes, and pepper.
In a smaller bowl combine the Italian dressing and oregano and mix with a wire whisk or fork. Pour over salad and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate over night to let the flavors blend.
Serves approximately 16. It keeps well for several days if kept refrigerated.

I made a spaghetti salad last night for funeral dinner...and it's very similar...it's a favorite of mine! Thanks for the new recipe! My family isn't as crazy about salads as am I...too bad!ReplyDelete
Yum! I love this kind of salad, especially in the summertime. It looks delicious!ReplyDelete
This sounds so good, a light summer dish, thanks for sharing !ReplyDelete
My husband would LOVE this!!ReplyDelete
I've had a variation of this salad and it is the perfect summertime food - and can just about be a meal by itself, especially at lunchtime. It's great to bring to gatherings or picnics because there's no mayo to spoil. SOOOO good - I need to make some today while I'm off!ReplyDelete
This is looking good and delicious!ReplyDelete
Yumm, this looks delish! Thanks for stopping by yesterday :)ReplyDelete
YUMMY!!!! That pasta salad sounds delicious. The only thing I would not put in my salad would be the black olives... I just don't know why but I've never liked black olives.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the recipe though... Sounds GREAT.
