This is my favorite pasta salad. It makes a perfect summer lunch served with cold red grapes and a fruity rosé wine. You can use whatever kind of salami you prefer (sopressata and genoa are both excellent).

Directions

  1. For the dressing, place all ingredients in a jar. Close lid tightly and shake until blended.
  2. For the salad, cook the pasta according to package directions in salted boiling water (about 1-2 tablespoons salt for a big pot of water).
  3. While the pasta is cooking, soak the red onion in ice water to mellow its flavor.
  4. Drain cooked pasta and place in a large bowl.
  5. Drain onions and pat dry, then add them to the pasta. Add the dressing, olives, peppers, feta, sun-dried tomatoes and salami to warm pasta and toss.
  6. Serve immediately at room temperature or refrigerate until ready to use.
