Meat and Dairy

  • 8 ounces Mozzarella Balls halved or quartered
  • 4 ounces Salami cut into bite-sized pieces




  • Cook the pasta according to the package instructions. Add a bit of oil into the pasta water to prevent the pasta from sticking. Drain and allow to cool.
  • Use a large bowl to combine cooled pasta, cherry tomatoes, bell pepper, cucumbers, and olives. Add fresh mozzarella and salami.
  • Pour Italian dressing over everything and toss well.


This salad will last in the fridge for up to 3 days.
