Easy Salami Pasta Salad Recipe

Publisher Photo
Popular any time of the year, this crowd-pleasing pasta salad is perfect for summer picnics. Made the day before, it has a pleasant vinaigrette dressing sparked with herbs. I set aside the Parmesan cheese and add it just before the salad is served. -Marion Lowery, Medford, Oregon

My family loves this salad and I'm always asked to share the recipe. It makes a nice light lunch to bring to work too.

The correct amount of vinegar is 1/4 cup, as now stated in the recipe here. We apologize for any confusion.

One thing though...in the original recipe in the taste of home cookbook 2001 it calls for 1/4 cup vinegar. 1/2 would be too much.
