Pasta Antipasto Salad

I adapted this recipe from one by JoAnna Lund. This hearty salad tastes so good, no one knows that it's reduced fat and calories.


  • 1 cup fat-free Italian salad dressing, divided
  • 1 cup mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2 cup ripe olives, chopped
  • 1 cup green pepper, chopped
  • 4 cups rotini, cooked and drained
  • 2 cups tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 (3.5 ounce) package turkey salami, sliced
  • 3/4 cup reduced-fat mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup artichoke hearts, drained and cut in half


  1. Mix 3/4 cup Italian dressing with mushrooms, olives, and peppers. Add tomatoes, salami, cheese, and artichoke hearts. Mix well to combine.
  2. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Add 1/4 cup remaining dressing. Stir and serve.

Serving Ideas : A nice summer luncheon dish. Serve on a bed of lettuce, with crusty bread.
