The flavors blend wonderfully when it is chilled overnight and keeps well for several days. A great dish for picnic or potlucks. I have friends asking for the recipe whenever I make this dish.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This is a simple pasta salad recipe that's well balanced and completely delicious. The savory chopped salami goes so well with the mild provolone cheese. Then, the saltiness from the olives pairs wonderfully with the sweetness from the fresh tomatoes. It's all tossed together with a colorful rotini pasta and dressed with zesty Italian dressing. Serve this as a side dish, but it's hearty enough to be a light main meal too. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
