Deli Style Pasta Salad

This is a great summer pasta salad and is so good and so easy to make. That is the beauty of salads is you can throw in whatever you want and call it a salad. I have added different kinds of cheese, broccoli, pepperoni, calamada olives and other things I can't remember right now.

Deli Style Pasta Salad

1 package (16 ounces) tricolor spiral pasta
2 medium plum tomatoes, seeded and julienned
8 ounces sliced salami, julienned
8 ounces provolone cheese, julienned
1 small red onion, thinly sliced and separated into rings
1 jar (5-3/4 ounces) pimiento-stuffed olives, drained
1 can (2-1/4 ounces) sliced ripe olives, drained
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 bottle (8 ounces) Italian salad dressing

Cook pasta according to package directions; drain and rinse in cold water.  

In a large bowl, combine the pasta, tomatoes, salami, provolone cheese, onion, olives and Parmesan cheese. Add dressing; toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for several hours or overnight. Just before serving stir pasta. Serve with a slotted spoon. Yield: 12 servings.
