Chicken & Pepperoni Pasta Salad

Sometimes all you need is a big bowl of Italian pasta salad. It’s such an awesome way of using up the extra odds and ends in the kitchen. I had extra pasta, chicken and pepperoni that needed to be eaten so in they went! 

4 ½ cups Pasta; cooked

½ cup Black Olives; sliced

½ cup Red Onion; chopped

½ cup Bell Pepper; cored & chopped

½ cup Celery; chopped

½ cup Pepperoni; chopped

1 cup cooked Chicken; chopped

¼ cup Parmesan Cheese

Italian Dressing:

½ cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil

2 tablespoons Red Wine Vinegar

2 teaspoons Garlic Powder

1 Tablespoon Italian Herbs

1 Tablespoon Onion Salt

1 Tablespoon Sugar

Pinch of Red Pepper Flakes

Salt and Pepper to taste

  1. Whisk the Italian dressing ingredients in a small bowl and set aside. 
  2. Add all of the remaining ingredients into a large bowl and drizzle the dressing over top. Toss to coat. 
  3. Cover with plastic wrap and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes before serving. 
  4. Enjoy!
