“This is a pasta salad that follows my usual trend of blending things I have in the kitchen and ended up with a dish that gets requested every time we go to a BBQ or party.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil your pasta in salted water until soft but not mushy. I eat several pieces as I am cooking to make sure they are the perfect consistency because the wrong consistency wrecks the recipe.
  2. Get a large bowl to blend your ingredients.
  3. Separate the pepperoni so that you don't end up with clumps of pepperoni.
  4. Add all the other items you wish to include or happen to have in your kitchen.
  5. Drain your pasta and run it under cool water so you don't melt your feta.
  6. Mix all ingredients together adding the entire bottle of the good Italian dressing - use your clean hands - it's the only way because it's a BIG salad.
  7. Serve in your biggest, prettiest bowl or platter - it's a colorful, beautiful summer salad that gets RAVES everywhere we go!
  8. ENJOY! By the way, it tastes better with every day that it sits in the fridge, but the cucumbers get a little soggy.
