Pasta Salad Italiano
1 package tri-color rotini, cooked to al dente' then drained and rinsed until cool
1 cup tiny pepperoni
1 cup Genoa salami slices, cut into wedges
1 (8 oz.) ball fresh mozzarella, cut into cubes
1 cup black olives, sliced in half
2 cups grape tomatoes, sliced in half
2 cups chopped colored bell pepper
1 cup diced onion (any type you wish red, yellow, white, or green)
diced, cherry peppers (from a jar) as desired
Mix all these ingredients together in a large bowl. Top with as much Italian salad dressing as needed to well coat everything. Grate a generous amount of parmesan cheese over the salad and stir again to mix well.
None of the ingredients in this salad are absolutes. If there is something you don't like, leave it out, if there is something you really like, add more. If there is something you think should be in the salad, but isn't in the recipe, please add it.
If you prefer a creamier salad, you can sub in mayo for some of the Italian dressing or just use a creamy Italian dressing.
