Looking for the perfect summer side dish recipe? Try this easy Italian pasta salad. Made from simple, delicious ingredients, this pasta salad is a must-try.
Prepare the veggies, cheese and meats:
Dice all of the veggies, cube the cheese, and cut the salami into wedges while the pasta cooks. Option to grill the artichokes. Be sure to add a sheet of aluminum foil to the grill before adding the artichokes.
Grill your artichokes for 3-4 minutes flipping them halfway through. The oil in the marinade will help prevent the artichokes from sticking. Remove from the grill and allow them too cool.
Prepare the dressing:
In a small mixing bowl, combine olive oil, red wine vinegar, oregano, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Whisk until well combined.
Assemble the dish:
Add the cooked pasta, mozzarella cubes, diced cucumbers, sliced tomatoes, thinly sliced shallots, salami wedges, olives, grilled artichokes, chopped Italian parsley and salt and pepper to a large mixing bowl.
Gently toss everything together with the dressing.
Serve slightly chilled and enjoy!
