ITALIAN SUB PASTA SALAD RECIPE

This salad has all the flavors of a sub sandwich but we add a little pasta for heartiness. It has salami, pepperoni, and deli ham with the fixings of Provolone, tomatoes, lettuce, and pepperoncini.

It reminds me of this Antipasto Salad but with pasta.

You can prep most of it ahead of time and then add the lettuce and tomatoes right before serving!

This salad is hearty! You could serve it as a main meal if you wanted.

INGREDIENTS

  • PASTA – You can use any short pasta here but I really like curly pasta because it soaks in the sauce.
  • PEPPERONI
  • SALAMI
  • DELI HAM
  • TOMATOES
  • PROVOLONE – The sharpness of this cheese is great and classic in an Italian sub.
  • PEPPERONCINI – This gives the salad some spice.
  • BELL PEPPER – This adds some crunch to the salad.
  • RED ONION
  • LETTUCE
