Reviews for Salami & Provolone Pasta Salad
"I added cut up cherry tomatoes, black olives, pepperoni and red onion. Great tasting with the zingy Italian dressing."
"This is kind of basic. I use both salami and pepperoni and add onions. Also prefer shredded cheese to the chunks so I use shredded mozzarella and add grated Parmesan as well. I also use a light Italian dressing and put in some additional Italian seasoning and garlic salt."
"This is a quick go to all in one pasta salad for a quick meal! I will add black olives and red onions next time for a little more color and flavor."
"This is ok - I added chopped green onions and black olives. Used Champagne dressing instead of Italian"
"This is ok - I added shopped green onions and black sliced olives. Used Champagne dressing instead of Italian"
