Summer Pasta Salad

It’s not summer yet, but yesterday we got some actual sun! It was gorgeous! And while meeting with a client in their yard, I was warm. Aaaaaaaaaah.

So with that warmth, I decided to bring out my summery pasta salad for dinner.

I was so excited for it I forgot to take pictures, like I did with my delicious enchiladas, but luckily, given my laziness, this is a simple recipe.


  • (1) 14-16 oz package of whole wheat corkscrew pasta
  • ~1/2 pound of salami (cut in 2 or 3 thick slices)
  • ~1/2 pound of pepperoni (cut in 2 or 3 thick slices)
  • ~1/2 an onion
  • (1 or 2) 14 oz package(s) of blue cheese crumbles
  • caesar dressing (to taste)

1) Cook pasta to desired level of doneness and drain.

2) Chop onion into small pieces. Chop salami and pepperoni into small-ish (~1/4″) cubes.

3) Mix pasta, salami, pepperoni, onion, and blue cheese in a large mixing bowl. Add caesar dressing and mix until entire salad is coated.

4) There is no 4. That’s it. Enjoy!

This is such a cool, refreshing salad. If you’re not a big onion fan, the saleslady today suggested adding grapes instead, which I think also sounds quite good! If you try it, let me know what you think.

And hey, it may not be the healthiest of meals, but it’s better than lots!
