Bring a touch of Italy to the dinner table with a delicious pasta salad bursting with cheese, salami, olives and tomatoes.
box Betty Crocker™ Suddenly Salad® Caesar pasta salad mix
cup Italian dressing
cups torn romaine lettuce
cup cubed salami
cup cherry tomatoes, halved
oz mozzarella or provolone cheese, cut into 1/2-inch cubes (1 cup)
can (2 1/4 oz) sliced ripe olives, drained
Empty Pasta mix into 3-quart saucepan 2/3 full of boiling water. Gently boil uncovered 12 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Drain pasta; rinse with cold water. Shake to drain well.
In large bowl, stir together seasoning mix and dressing. Toss with pasta and remaining ingredients. Stir in croutons and Parmesan topping just before serving. Serve immediately, or refrigerate.
Make this salad a day ahead, but wait to stir in the lettuce, croutons and Parmesan topping until just before serving.
Make it your way. Use a 3.5-ounce package of sliced pepperoni instead of the salami; cut the slices in half. Add canned (drained) artichoke hearts, or use other olives from the deli.
Purchase a bag of ready-to-eat torn romaine lettuce to save time.
