I remember when I first had this easy cold pasta salad recipe, I thought it was the best cold pasta salad I have tasted.
My sister laughed and thought I was kidding. A few months later, I asked her for the recipe and she had no idea what I was talking about. When she realized what cold pasta salad recipe I was referring to, she said there is NO recipe!
So of course, I wanted to share this fabulous tasting’ easy cold pasta recipe with you all, so I actually came up with some sort of recipe.
But, it’s cheating just a little bit. It can be our secret.
How to Make Easy Cold Pasta Salad
- 2 boxes of Simply Salad – I use the Caesar kind
- 1 T Olive Oil
- 3T of Pesto Sauce
- 1/2 lb of pepperoni, cut in quarters or use the mini’s
- 1/2 lb of salami, diced
- Feta Cheese, crumbled
- Greek Olives (optional) I don’t like them, but most people do
Boil pasta according to direction, let pasta cool in colander. Mix pasta with olive oil and pesto sauce until blended. Add the rest of the ingredients including 1 of the packets of the seasoning that came in the box. Refrigerate before serving.
Yes, it’s that simple. Feel free to adjust any ingredients to fit your needs. Salad peppers would be great in the easy cold pasta salad recipe.
