Italian Pasta Salad

Italian Pasta Salad
My son graduated and we threw a huge party this weekend. It was so hot and everyone was going to be in and around the pool. I didn’t want any mayonnaise based dressings so I opted for a vinegar based dressing. It was very delicious and no one missed the mayo at all… although my son did break my camera which is the reason for the not so good picture. 

Italian Pasta Salad
1 lb small noodles
1 lb salami diced small
1 lb sharp cheddar cheese cubed
2 green peppers diced small
2 red peppers diced small
1 sweet onion diced small
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1/2 cup olive oil
2 tsp crushed oregano
salt & pepper to taste

Boil the pasta a little less time than according to the package directions, drain and cool.  When the pasta has cooled, toss it in a mixing bowl with the red wine vinegar, olive oil, oregano and salt & pepper.  Next add the peppers onions, salami and cheese. Toss again and serve it up. Delicious!

  1. Yum! I love a good pasta salad and your looks terrific. My dad used to make something similar to yours, except that he’d add cubed zucchini, black olives, halved grape tomatoes, and add some fresh rosemary to the vinaigrette. Great post!
