Pasta Salad Essentials:

  • 1 pound uncooked pasta
  • 3 cups cherry tomatoes cut in half
  • 8 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese balls cut in half
  • 1 lb. salami or summer sausage cut into cubes
  • 3/4 cup kalamata olives sliced
  • 3/4 cup pepperoncini optional, but do it
  • 1/2 cup sliced red onion
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley chopped


  • Cook pasta according to package directions, in salted water for more flavor. Allow to cool slightly and toss with a little oil to prevent sticking.
  • Blend up the dressing, or shake together in a jar.
  • Toss all ingredients together I like to use about three-fourths of the dressing, and then I save the rest of the dressing to add to my leftovers.
  • Keep in the fridge for 2-3 days. I think it actually tastes best the day after you make it.
