I have to give 5 stars for a salad recipe that my DH will eat. He won't eat mayo.......but likes Italian dressing, so he devoured this. I substituted a couple of items (personal preferences) like cubed cheddar and pepperjack cheese instead of provolone. I added a diced jalepeno to the peppers listed, and also some black sliced olives with the green. This makes a very large bowl of salad, so we will enjoy this for another couple of days. Just delicious.......and so much better than the store deli's version. Donna June 2010, I made this again today and used the new little mini-rounds of pepperoni instead of the ham...SO GOOD.

I make this salad all the time in the summer and it never lasts long! I do make a few changes, I omit the olives and ham and add diced zuchinni and a dash of sugar. The pasta does seem to absorb the dressing so just be sure to add a little at a time and check it after it's been refrigerated for a few hours. You may need to add a little more and give it a quick stir before serving. This is one of my family's favorites. Easy and delicious!
