    Made these for a party today and they were a hit. They not only look great and fun, they have rich savory flavor. I substituted feta cheese for the chicken, though, because I had seen it in other recipes for this and was making other appetizers with meat. Also I used pepperoni instead of salami because that is what I had on hand. For the vinaigrette, I just made a simple oil and vinegar dressing with some oregano and seasoning salt that dried garlic in it. The stuffed shells that I bought were not labeled “jumbo” but when they cooked up they were plenty big. I made the shells one day in advance and set them on an olive oil rubbed sheet of wax paper on a tray so they would stick together. I chopped the salad and stuffed the salad about one hour before the party and they held up strong. Next time, I will do more chopping the night before and feel free to stuff the shells even more in advance.
