Gluten-Free Italian Pasta Salad

This Gluten-Free Italian Pasta Salad tastes just like pizza and is so scrumptious we doubt you’ll have leftovers! Gluten-free pasta and salami match with tomatoes, cucumbers, and black olives and are then drizzled with an Italian salad dressing. The result is nothing short of divine. This pasta salad can easily stand in as a side dish or main course. {Gluten-Free}


  • 1 package gluten-free pasta, cooked according to package instructions
  • 1 batch Homemade Italian Salad Dressing
  • 4 ounces mini salami, sliced or quartered 
  • 1 can black olives, sliced
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes, sliced
  • 1/2 cup red onion, diced
  • 1 cup cucumber, quartered or diced into eighths


  1. Prepare one box of pasta according to package instructions. While the pasta is cooking, prepare one batch of Homemade Italian Salad Dressing. Set it aside. Then slice the olives and grapes and dice the red onion and cucumber.
  2. When the pasta is done cooking, rinse it under cold water and drain the water. Transfer pasta to a mixing bowl and stir in the toppings. Then add about 2/3 cup dressing and stir until evenly mixed. Taste test and decide if you want more. If yes, add the remaining dressing.
  3. Keep refrigerated and eat within about 1-2 days.
