What's Cookin' Wednesday ~ Pasta Salad

One of my all time favorite summer side dishes is this pasta salad.
I make it all the time in the summer.
It's great to have for lunch the next day too.
Here is what you need:
1 box tri-color spiral pasta
2 slices of provolone cheese cut 1/2 inch thick
2 slices of genoa salami cut 1/2 inch thick
Grape Tomatoes, halved
Small black olives, pitted and halved (or buy sliced)
1 Packet of Good Seasons Italian dressing mix
Vegetable Oil
Red Wine Vinegar
What you do:
Make the salad dressing as indicated - good seasons has their own bottle, so if you don't have one, pick that set up up at the grocery store. It gives you the measurements on the bottle. So make that and stick it in the fridge to set.
Next, boil your water for the pasta & toss in the pasta
While the pasta is cooking, cut the salami and cheese into small chunks.
Next, slice the grape tomatoes in half
And lastly slice the olives if you didn't get the pre sliced ones.
Once the pasta is cooked and cooled, throw all the ingredients into the bowl.
Then pour the dressing on top and mix up well.
Chill in the fridge before serving!
What pasta salads do you love in the summer??
