In New Berlin, Wisconsin, Carol Smith tosses a hearty blend of ingredients that our taste testers ranked"a cut above any deli salad we've ever tasted."


  • 7 ounces uncooked small pasta shells
  • 1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
  • 1 cup halved ripe olives
  • 1 block (6 ounces) mozzarella cheese, cut into thin strips
  • 4 ounces salami, cut into thin strips
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
  • 4 green onions, sliced
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 tablespoons cider or red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder


  1. Cook pasta according to package directions; drain and rinse in cold water. Place in a large bowl; add the next six ingredients. In a jar with a tight-fitting lid, combine the dressing ingredients; shake well. Pour over salad and toss to coat. Chill until serving.
