Salami Garden Pasta Salad

This is a super simple salad to make for any occasion!  You can personalize it any way you like.

Salami Garden Pasta Salad
(Serves 10-12 for a meal, more servings when it is a side dish.)

l - 12oz package of three colored curly pasta
8 oz thin sliced salami, cut into 6ths
3-5 tomatoes, cut up
red onion, sliced thin and cut up a bit
black olives
1 cucumber, chopped (I like it unpeeled)
season with black pepper and a few fresh basil leaves
Italian salad dressing, any kind, (use the amount you like)

optional ingredients could include:
grated carrots
chunks of cheese
chopped hard-boiled eggs

1.  (cook according to the package directions, al dente)
2.  Rinse pasta.
3.  Add all other ingredients.
4.  Toss well to incorporate the dressing.
5.  Chill 2 hours up to 24 hours.

This is so versatile, that you can make it your own way.  None of the ingredients will be missed if you don't have them.  It's my favorite salad to make when using the fresh veggies and basil from my garden.
