It wouldn’t be summer without a pasta salad recipe on the blog! Last year I shared a super easy recipe for a light, refreshing pasta salad here. This year I have a revamped, Italian pasta salad. This recipe is fresh but also has that anti pasta feel.
Pasta salads are great at a barbecue but also a great lunch for the week. It’s super easy to meal prep and stores so well in the fridge. This recipe is easily my go to when I have guests or just need a quick lunch idea for the week!
1 box cavatapi pasta
Container of grape tomatoes
1 medium red onion
Log of salami
Half an english cucumber
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1 tsp basil
1 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp oregano
- Bring a pot of water to a boil and cook your pasta according to the package. Let the pasta cool completely! This is essential.
- Finely dice your tomato, onion, cucumber and salami. This is up to you but I like mine about half an each chunks.
- Mix together olive oil, red wine vinegar, and all spices.
- Once pasta is completely cooled, mix in veggies, salami and dressing! Enjoy 🙂
