Key Ingredients

ingredients to make pasta salad with feta, tomatoes, dill, salami

Ingredient Notes

Pasta. My favorite gluten-free pasta that holds perfect shape and tastes great would be pasta by Delallo or cassava fusilli by Jovial brand.

Salami. You can substitute and use ham, sliced turkey, or pepperoni instead.

Feta. Also great when goat cheese is used instead.

Olive oil. Use quality olive oil and don’t forget to salt.

Fresh dill. Instead of dill, try with parsley or pesto dressing.

How to Make It

You will need to boil pasta and let it cool before combining it with vegetables.

While pasta is cooking, slice all needed vegetables.

Combine.

Recipe Tips

Don’t overcook. It;’s better to cook pasta al dente for the best flavor.

Let pasta cool before combining with vegetables.

I have the best success buying gluten-free pasta online from Thrive Market.

Optional ingredients. Add marinated green olives for more flavor
