Makes: Pound of pasta salad Total Time: 15 min
Category: Salads Sub Category: Other

what you need
  • 1 box tri-color rotini pasta
  • 2 large fresh mozzarella balls
  • 1/2 pound salami sliced thin
  • 1 large cucumber
  • Roasted red peppers
  • 1 container cherry tomatoes (small tomatoes)
  • 1 can black pitted olives (whole or chopped)
  • 1 bottle Italian dressing
make it
Boil pasta as directed. While pasta is boiling,

Cut up mozzarella balls (unless your grocery store offers small bite-size mozzarella balls in water at the store) into bite-size pieces and throw into a big bowl. Do the same for the salami, cucumber, and roasted red peppers. Either cut the cherry tomatoes and olives into smaller bite size pieces, or leave whole, and throw into the mixture as well.

Once pasta is cooked, drain as usual, but immediately run under cold water to cool pasta off. Once cooled and drained, throw into bowl and toss with mixture. Add whole bottle of Italian dressing (it will absorb with time) and serve immediately or refrigerate day before for pasta to soak up some flavor!
Great for summer picnics, easy to make day ahead!
