The BEST Pasta Salad

This effortless Italian pasta salad combines rotini, ripe tomatoes, creamy mozzarella, red onion, tangy salami, olives, and fresh herbs, all brought together with a splash of homemade Italian dressing.

Confession: I’ve enjoyed this dish in 4 out of my last 5 meals. Yeah, we’re in a full-blown love affair over here.

To me, a classic pasta salad is perfect for two situations:

Bringing to picnics, potlucks, or any summer gathering where everyone contributes a dish.

Crafting a delightful meal from the random meat, cheese, and veggies left in my fridge – a dish I can’t resist any time of the day.

This pasta salad has got you covered for both.

The beauty lies in its adaptability. Here are my top picks for pasta salad ingredients:

Spicy salami, delicious cheeses, fresh tomatoes or any friendly veggie, some greens (even if it’s just parsley), olives, red onions, and pepperoncini.

And let’s not forget about the pasta itself. It needs a texture and shape robust enough to soak in all that flavorful dressing. My choice? Rotini. Especially from DeLallo – its semi-rough texture is just right.
