Garden Spiral Salad

Another recipe from Debbie. =)

16 ounce garden spiral pasta (rotini, etc)
1/2 cup hard salami chopped
1/2 cup pepperoni chopped
1 cup cucumbers, chopped
1/3 cup green pepper choped
1/3 cup red onion rings
2 tomatoes chopped
1/2 tsp parsley flakes
1/2 cup cheese cubed or shredded (mozzarella or cheddar)
1 1/2 cup Italian style dressing of oil vinegar dressing
(I think olives are good in this too)

Cook Pasta. Drain and chill. Combine all ingredients except dressing. Toss with dressing when ready to serve

You can substitute ranch dressing or use broccoli and cawliflower etc. For the pic in this post I didnt have any salami so I used Polska Kielbasa. It still was delicious!
