Susi’s “AWESOME” Italian Pasta Salad
2/3 cup olive oil ½ tsp. red pepper ¾ tsp. yellow mustard
½ cup vinegar ½ tsp. white pepper ¾ tsp. oregano
¾ tsp. paprika ¾ tsp. minced garlic powder ½ tsp. salt
¾ tsp. curry powder ¾ tsp. Italian seasoning olive juice from the can
*Eventually you will get to the point where you don’t measure, just starting pouring the right amounts in your hand that look right and align with your taste. Experiment until you get it to your liking of flavors, but start with this first.
½ lb. salami* 1 each – green, yellow & red pepper (chopped)
½ lb. pepperoni* 16 oz. tri-color Rotini pasta
1 lb. provolone* 1 can jumbo or colossal olives – pitted
1 lb. ham* 2 medium onions 3 tomatoes
*Sliced 1/8” thick from grocer. I can’t stress enough to purchase good quality lunchmeat and cheese.
Prepare pasta while chopping up all salad ingredients. Place the ingredients into a large bowl. Combine cooled, cooked pasta with those ingredients. Pour the oil, vinegar and olive juice into a glass shaker, then add each spice. Shake the container vigorously. Taste to see if it is to your liking and make any adjustments. When completely mixed, pour over the salad ingredients. Dig hands deep into the salad and thoroughly mix all ingredients together! For best results, refrigerate overnight. It will continue to get even tastier over the next couple of days as the dressing ingredients soak in. Enjoy!
