Ellen's Muffaletta Pasta Salad
This salad has everything in the filling of a muffaletta sandwich but in pasta salad form! It is a great salad to take on a picnic and it has a nice variation of tastes on the tongue in each bite! It is one of our summer picnic staples!
Instead of rotini, try fusilli pasta in green, white, and orange colors, or even a mixture of the two to total one pound.
Kalamata olives can be replaced with canned black olives.
Mix the salad all up again just before serving and add more of the Italian dressing, if the salad seems dry because the pasta absorbed the dressing.
