When I have guests coming over or a busy day ahead, I like to make this salad because I prepare it the day before.


  • 1 package (16 ounces) medium pasta shells
  • 1/4 pound hard salami, cubed
  • 1/4 pound sliced pepperoni, halved
  • 1 block (4 ounces) provolone cheese, cubed
  • 4 medium tomatoes, seeded and chopped
  • 4 celery ribs, chopped
  • 1 medium green pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 cup sliced pimiento-stuffed olives
  • 1/2 cup sliced ripe olives
  • 1 bottle (8 ounces) Italian salad dressing
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper


  1. Cook pasta according to package directions; drain pasta and rinse in cold water.
  2. Place in a gallon-size resealable plastic bag; add the salami, pepperoni, cheese, vegetables and olives. Add the salad dressing, oregano and pepper; seal and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Transfer to a serving bowl.
