Pasta Salad with Homemade Dressing
July 30, 2005

Plan ahead to make this one. Note the 8 hour chilling. Good for potlucks, it makes a large bowl of salad. Lots of ingredients, some of which you won’t have on hand. I bought some exclusively for this. Gets pricey too if you don’t have some of the stuff. I did have quite a few things. Very colorful with the meat, cheese and veggies, so don’t substitute or omit and ruin that. Cut the cost a little by using a couple of ounces less of sliced pepperoni, provolone and olives. Instead of chunks, cut pizza size pepperoni slices into quarters and provolone slices first into strips, then cut again into ½ inch squares. Only a 2 ¼ oz. can of sliced olives, drained, is needed. I used only ½ a red onion. There was still plenty of everything to distribute thru the salad. Will make again.
