Very tasty, the dressing is great! Plenty oil, though, and I left the canola oil out alltogether, and never missed it with all that lovely olive oil still in there. Also, we thought the olives where bit overpowering, and I will reduce them to 1-11/2 cup next time.

As usual when making a salad with a dressing I only add "some" of the dressing and stir, I then add "some" more dressing until I get just the amount I desire. Have never had to much dressing on a salad when made in this manner. This salad gave my hubby a very happy mouth. He did request sliced pepperoni in addition to the salami. I was happy to oblige as it only made the salad better.

I adapted this recipe to suit ingredients that I had on hand. I used plain dry rotini pasta, omitted the red pepper, added extra garlic, red onion, grape tomatoes, and broccoli, and subbed pepperoni for the salami. It was a beautiful and flavorful pasta salad. I am sure that everyone will love it. Thanks for posting.
