Italian Pasta Salad Recipe

Italian Pasta Salad is one of our preferred pasta plate of mixed greens plans. This is a simple, make-ahead serving of mixed greens that is ideal for supper prep. Each chomp is stacked with rotini, salami, mozzarella, olives, sound veggies, and a custom made smooth Italian Dressing.

Italian Pasta Salad is a feast in itself with protein, grains and a lot of vegetables. It has lively Italian flavors with kalamata olives, new mozzarella cheddar, salami, and parsley.

We love that you can switch up the fixings dependent on what you have close by. Take a stab at subbing with diced chime pepper, or crunchy broccoli, or use Feta rather than Mozarella cheddar to include some Greek flavors. P.S. In case you’re feeling daring, cooking your own chime peppers will take this serving of mixed greens to the following level.
