Missy's Copycat Pasta Salad
Missy Tippens, here. I got inspired by Ruthy's post a week or two ago (click here) to make my own version of her pasta salad. It turned out so good I decided to share mine!
First, I went to the deli at the grocery store. I bought thick slices of pepperoni, hard salami and provolone cheese. I also gathered several Penzey's spices since I found out the salad seasoning Ruthy used has whole sesame seeds in it (I can't eat them).
I wanted to add sweet peppers as well and bought this bag of mini peppers for the first time. They were SO GOOD. Very crisp and sweet and easy to use. I'll be buying them again in the future.
I'd recently had this dressing, Ken's Greek, on a pasta salad at a luncheon so decided to pick up a bottle. It's VERY good! Not too tart like some Italian dressings (in my opinion).
I cooked the pasta about two minutes less than the package recommended. Then added the chopped veggies, meats and cheese. Look how pretty!
Wait!! I forgot the olives! So I sliced and added them. I used calamata, my favorite.
I added the dressing to taste, the spices, and then stirred well. I ate it right then, but it was even better the next day.
