    30 minutes

    I can't get enough of pepperoni, salami and mozzarella so I created this salad. It's even better the day after.

    It drives me crazy when people change the recipe then rate the original recipe! I followed RECIPE WAS GREAT! I love pasta salad but never really made my own until this recipe. Since making the original recipe, I have played with it a little, I added green olives also. IT ALWAYS COMES OUT GREAT. Thank you.  -  08 Jul 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is a great dish, very colorful. I made a few adjstments however. I like to make this salad a day in advance to let the flavors mix together. I add the garlic when i first make it. I also eliminated the peperoni and decreased the salami to 1/4 lb. One pound of meat is too much for this dish. Finally, i use Kraft Roasted Red Peppper with Parmesan dressing. The dressing really makes the salad.  -  24 Jun 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Fantastic! I omitted almost half of the ingredients and it's still good. I left out the artichoke, black olives, zucchini, garlic, red onion and salami. I used the KraftsRoasted Red pepper Italian Dressing with Parmesan. I can't wait until tomorrow. I'm trying to allow the flavors a chance to blend.  -  01 Aug 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
