One of my favorite things to bring to a cookout (besides the meat!) is a good summer pasta salad.

There are two stars to this salad – the giardiniera dressing and the Galileo® Salame.  Best part is that this can be made ahead of time and it’s good in the fridge for several days.

Summer Pasta Salad

Yield: 10 servings
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes

No summer get together is complete without a pasta salad, and this ticks all the boxes: light, summery and delicious! The star of this pasta salad is the Galileo® Salame. It's deli thin sliced, has 100% high-quality pork and has just a bite of spice with it’s unique herb and spice blend. #swoon. This makes enough for a crowd to feed 8 - 10 people. Full recipe is up on my blog in the link below. #Walmart

I love that there are both cooked and raw veggies in this pasta salad.  The dressing is slightly spicy and the Galileo® Salame has a nice spicy kick too.

You can find Galileo® Salame near the deli items at your local Walmart.
