Reviews for Salami N Shells Salad
"I have made this salad for years. The first time I made it I somehow misread it and used pepperoni instead of salami. We loved it so much I have never corrected this happy mistake."
"This is my all time favorite pasta salad recipe. Its the perfect mix. I use cooked ham instead of salami.. its much better in my opinion. Love this recipe and it is a must try!!!!"
"I like it much better with feta cheese...use it to fill us a cup when on the go (no spoon or fork needed)"
"Excellent for a summer potluck! I added some chopped artichoke hearts, and it was even more delicious!"
