Hello Everyone!

This weekend our team got together to sample some steak rubs and try out a pasta salad that I came up with!  WOW!!!  It got 5 Stars from everyone, and like many of my recipes, it was simple to put together!

 

Here is what you will need:

 

1 package of  (12 oz) tricolor spiral pasta

 

1 package of (10 oz) refrigerated tricolor tortellini

 

12 ounces of provolone cheese, cubed

 

12 ounces hard salami, cubed

 

2 cans (2 1/4 oz each)  sliced olives, drained

 

1 medium onion, chopped
 
4 garlic cloves minced
 
2 envelopes Italian salad dressing mix (requires oil, vinegar & water)
 
 
On your stovetop, in separate pots, cook the Spiral Pasta and the Tortellini per package directions.  Once cooked, drain separately and rinse with cold water.
 
In a large bowl, combine cooked pastas, cubed provolone cheese, chopped salami, sliced olives, diced onions and minced garlic.  Toss ingredients.
 
Mix up salad dressing per instructions (I used a well know mix and added vinegar, oil & water) add to pasta mixture.  Toss to thoroughly coat the pasta with the dressing.
 
Serve immediately or refrigerate!
 
Hint:  This salad would be great with sliced Artichokes, Sun-dried Tomatoes, diced Chicken, or broccolli!  Get creative with this one!
