How to Make Balsamic Pasta Salad
Boil the pasta according to the directions on the box. We love Barilla bow ties for this.
Place the boiled pasta into a large bowl. Check out this super cool salad bowl with servers that I just ordered.
Isn’t the blue and white so pretty?
Add olives, tomatoes, mozzarella pearls, parmesan & salami slices. Is your mouth watering yet?
Pour in the balsamic dressing.
Mix well and enjoy!
This is one of those salad recipes that you can alter with your favorite ingredients.
For example, I’ll omit the olives when I make this for my sister’s house, as she is not a fan.
If you would rather make your own this balsamic vinaigrette is a favorite.
