“My variation of Suddenly Salad! This recipe is fresh and delicious.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 16 ounces rotini pasta, pasta. cooked according to package directions. (I like the spinach or wheat or red variety because it is pretty)
  • 12 ounces marinated artichoke hearts (oil included... do not drain)
  • 8 ounces pimientos (well drained) or 8 ounces roasted red peppers (well drained)
  • 8 ounces of sliced black olives (well drained)
  • 8 ounces swiss cheese (cubed into little tiny bits)
  • 8 ounces feta cheese (you can buy this pre-crumbled and ready to go)
  • 8 ounces green olives (well drained)
  • 8 ounces pepperoni (you can buy it in a convenient package already sliced)
  • Optional
  • olive oil


  1. Cook the pasta. Drain it well and rinse under cold running water to stop the cooking process for a minute or so.
  2. Dump all of it into a big bowl and mix. Refrigerate for a day.
  3. Be sure and include the oil from the marinated artichoke hearts! If it is too dry for your tastes add a few tablespoons of olive oil to loosen it up a bit.
  4. This makes a lot of cold pasta salad in 20 minutes!
