Party Salad Boats

READY IN: 2hrs
Recipe by puppitypup

Perfect for a buffet party because it turns salad into a finger food! If the onions aren't mild enough, saute them in olive oil first.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Assemble the salad dressing an hour ahead, so the onion and salad dressing have time to blend but the onion is still crunchy.
  2. Bring the water to a boil with the salt. Add the pasta and cook for 12 minutes. Drain immediately and cool completely.
  3. Chop the romaine, tomatoes and pepperoni. Drain and add the olives. Crumble the cheese over the salad.
  4. Toss the salad dressing and salad. The dressing will be clumpy. Add the dressing a little at a time, being careful to not add too much. Add garlic salt to taste.
  5. (I usually spoon out the onions with a large non-slotted spoon. I use the dressing that comes along with the onions, leaving any excess dressing for another day.).
  6. Fill the pasta shells.
