    Great salad. I sometimes omit the pastrami and add in pepperoni, salami, and ham.

    This salad may sound simple but it packs a lot of flavor! The only change I made was to change the ham to pepperoni just for family preference. What a wonderful salad to take to a potluck, plates beautifully and is very quick to prepare. Will definitely make again.
