Gluten-Free Summer Antipasto Pasta Salad

I just love the flavors of antipasto – artichokes, peppers, salami, mozzarella, tomato – yum! It’s delicious year-round but is even more perfect during the summer. This Gluten-Free Summer Antipasto Pasta Salad has all the flavors I love in an antipasto dish.

This dish is great for potlucks and picnics because it’s a pasta salad that does not contain mayonnaise! Instead, it uses olive oil and red wine vinegar (both from Pastene) to moisten the pasta and coat the vegetables.

If you don’t eat meat and want to omit the salami, you can. It will change the taste, of course, but you could add a little more salt and/or some Kalamata olives to give it a little extra something.
