Italian Deli Pasta Salad

Italian Deli Pasta Salad

This pasta salad has all my favorite things from the Italian deli - a trio of meats, a mix of cheeses, and giardiniera. I like to switch it up and use other meats like prosciutto, hot calabrese, or mortadella. Giardiniera comes in mild and hot varieties; use whichever you prefer. A good-quality Italian dressing makes a difference too!

    Combine pasta, tomatoes, provolone cheese, salami, pepperoni, capicola, onion, olives, giardiniera, Parmesan cheese, and 1/2 of the Italian dressing in a large bowl. Stir to combine and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
