Cheap and Cheerful Cooking: Pasta Salad with Salami and Mozzarella
Bring on picnic season! This go-to salad from Real Simple is super easy and super tasty.
Cook 2 cups gemelli (or some other short pasta) according to the package directions; drain and rinse under cold water.
Toss in a large bowl with 2 cups chopped spinach, 1 cup grape tomatoes (halved), 4 ounces fresh mozzarella (cut into pieces), and 2 ounces salami (cut into pieces).
Whisk together 3 tablespoons olive oil, 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar, ½ teaspoon kosher salt, and ¼ teaspoon black pepper.
Transport the pasta mixture and vinaigrette separately; drizzle the salad with the vinaigrette before serving.
