This is a very flavorful, simple pasta salad that is similar to Antipasto, yet very unique in its flavors and textures. I love the fresh garlic and the mixture of seasonings. Very, very nice for picnics, potlucks, and well...just anytime:)

I don't know if you mean "Genoa" salami by "hard cooked" salami. I have used Genoa salami this recipe many times & it's great. I also just use ready Italian dressing. It works fine too.
