Classic cold Italian Pasta Salad with a homemade Italian dressing is the perfect potluck or summer side dish. It’s easy to make and everyone always loves it!

Is Italian pasta salad really an Italian dish?
No. This is not an authentic Italian dish. It is called Italian pasta salad because it uses Italian dressing, not because it is a traditional Italian pasta. “Italian” pasta salad is very much an American dish.


1 pound rotini pasta
1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
8 ounces fresh mini mozzarella cheese balls, halved
1/2 -1 cup sliced olives
1 cup mini pepperonis
1/2 cup pepperonicini, roughly chopped
1/2 red onion, diced

1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon lemon juice
2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Pinch of red pepper flakes


1. Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and rinse with cold water until pasta is cooled.

2. In a large mixing bowl, make your dressing by whisking together olive oil, vinegar, lemon juice, Italian seasoning, sugar, garlic powder, and red pepper flakes.

3. Add cooked pasta in with the Italian dressing. Toss with tomatoes, mozzarella, olives, mini pepperonis, pepperoncinis and onion.

4. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour before serving.

Cant we use regular sized tomatoes and dice them up or would it just make the pasta water

Hanae Ben Aissa says:

Can I put something else other than pepperoni?

Martin says:

I hate raw onions. They completely dominate the other ingredients and ruin the overall balance of the dish. I don't get why people add them to recipes.

Erik De Wilde says:

She speaks like a robot
