I love this cold pasta salad because there are so many nice colors going on. It makes a great side for a summer meal. Try it with any meat off the grill.

This is a very, very tasty salad! Made it withouth the ham, but only because I was serving it with a chicken dinner! Also used slightly less than 1/2 bottle of Italian dressing, which was plenty for us! Thanks for posting your recipe! Definitely want to try it again sometime, WITH the cubbed ham!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Prepare noodles according to package directions. Drain and rinse in cold water.
  2. In large bowl, combine noodles, broccoli, celery, olives, onion, ham, and cheese. Mix well.
  3. Coat with Italian dressing and mix well. Refrigerate for 25 minutes. Mix again and add more dressing to coat well. I use about 12-14 oz of the bottle total.
