I have some frends on special diets and everyone loves this salad.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This is a very good pasta salad recipe for summer cookouts and will be great if you need a gluten-free option. It's a hearty pasta salad full of flavor and texture. We liked the little spice from the salami. As it's stirred, the Feta cheese covers the other ingredients. Fresh chopped basil throughout it is tasty. The dressing is just enough to coat the mixture and let all the fresh ingredients shine. If you like more of a wet pasta salad, we'd suggest doubling the dressing recipe.
