    diner524's Note:

    Recipe I found on Moroccan Food on About.com. It states that you can add a variety of vegetables (your choice), so would I add carrots, celery along with the suggested bell pepper as my choices. Here is what is stated about the recipe: "This antipasto-style pasta salad gets a Moroccan twist with ingredients common in Morocco – cured meat, olives, Edam cheese, and veggies – and an easy cooked vinaigrette that takes just minutes to prepare. Use my suggestions below, or personalize the salad with up to 3 1/2 cups of your own additions such as marinated artichokes, pimientos, black olives, mushrooms, cooked baby carrots or cauliflower or broccoli florets. Allow chilling time before serving. The tri-colored pasta salad is intended as a side dish, but you may find yourself eating enough of it to make it your main course!"

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    For the Pasta Salad

    • 1 lb tri-colored rotini pasta (spiral)
    • 1 cup salami, cut into very thin sticks (or saucisson)
    • 1 cup edam cheese, cut into tiny cubes (or other variety)
    • 1 bell pepper, finely chopped (or cut into thin sticks)
    • 1/2 cup green olives, sliced
    • 1/2 cup corn

    For the Vinaigrette

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cook the pasta al dente according to the package directions. Drain the pasta, rinse with cold water, and leave it to cool and drain completely in a colander.
    2. 2
      While the pasta is cooking, make the dressing. Place the vinaigrette's ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer the dressing for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove the partially crushed garlic cloves and set the dressing aside to cool.
    3. 3
      Transfer the cooled pasta to a large bowl and add the salami, cheese, olives, peppers and corn (or add your own ingredients – up to 3 1/2 cups). Pour the vinaigrette over the salad and stir gently to mix. Cover, and leave the pasta salad to marinate in the fridge for several hours or overnight.
    4. 4
      Stir the salad and check for seasoning, before serving.

      I halved the recipe since I was making for just myself and didn't want a ton leftover. Used mini farfalle instead of rotini (what I had on hand). Used the full amts of salami (cubed) and edam, half a bell pepper, full amt of corn, about 2 Tbsp olives, and also added half a can of artichoke hearts (chopped) and a few Tbsp homemade pickled green tomatoes (diced). Used shallot in the dressing and white wine vinegar. Really delicious. Love the za'atar in the dressing. Thanks for sharing!
