  • 16 ounces spaghetti
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 European cucumber, chopped
  • 1 orange bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 4 ounces salami, chopped
  • 4 ounces pepperoni, chopped
  • 4 ounces sliced black olives, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, finely grated
  • 1 teaspoon fresh parsley, minced



  • Cook the spaghetti to al dente according to package directions, strain and run cold water over it to prevent further cooking. 
  • While spaghetti is cooking, prep your vegetables and whisk together the dressing ingredients in a medium bowl.
  • Add the cooked pasta, vegetables, dressing, parsley, and Parmesan to a large bowl and toss to combine. Chill in the fridge for at least two hours to allow the flavors to build. 


  • Turkey Pepperoni may be used in place of salami and regular pepperoni.
  • Store bought Italian dressing may be used in place of the homemade recipe.
  • Salad should chill for at least 2 hours and can be refrigerated for up to 4 days.
  • Cheese can be omitted for a dairy free side dish.
