You just can’t have too many pasta salad recipes.  They’re the perfect accompaniment to any BBQ, picnic or potluck so it’s always nice to have a variety to choose from.  I had a chunk of mozzarella and some pepperoni left over from a pizza I made the other day and needed a pasta salad to take with me for an event and so I thought why not combine the two?

We’ve got cheese, pepperoni, bell peppers, tomatoes and onions folded with pasta and tossed with a homemade Italian dressing.  It takes just minutes to prepare, is the perfect make-ahead salad, makes for a pretty and colorful presentation, and tastes delicious!

Let’s get started!

Placed the cooked, drained and fully cooled pasta in a large mixing bowl.  Add all the remaining pasta salad ingredients.

combining ingredients in a bowl

Prepare the vinaigrette by placing all the ingredients in a bowl or shaker and whisking/shaking until emulsified.  Pour the vinaigrette over the pasta salad and stir everything until combined and the pasta salad is coated with the vinaigrette.

Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours or overnight before serving and then stir it again.  Be sure to let the salad chill for at least 3 hours to give the flavors time to meld.
