Italian Pasta Salad

The classic Italian antipasti plate, with its salty, briny, and rich elements, translates perfectly to a hearty pasta salad. Since the flavors in this salad get better as they sit, it’s well-suited for your next picnic or potluck alongside some Buttermilk Fried Chicken. Have vegetarian guests? We recommend our easy pesto pasta salad, as well.

Instructions

  1. 1Place the onion, vinegar, and oregano in a large, nonreactive bowl and stir to combine; set aside.
  2. 2Bring a large pot of heavily salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the pasta and cook according to the package directions. Drain and rinse under cold water until cool. Drain any excess water and transfer to the bowl with the onion-vinegar mixture.
  3. 3Add the remaining measured ingredients and toss until evenly combined. Taste and season with salt and pepper as needed. Serve at room temperature, or prepare up to 1 day in advance and refrigerate until ready to serve.
