Deli-Style Italian Pasta Salad Recipe

Deli-Style Italian Pasta Salad Recipe

When I'm having weekend guests, I make this salad the day before they arrive. The flavors blend wonderfully when it is chilled overnight, and it keeps well for several days. It's also a great dish to take along to a picnic or potluck. -Jill Evely, Wilmore, Kentucky
