Friend Friday - Summer Recipe

I'm joining up with Katy at Modly Chic for FBFF again!  Today everyone is going to share a recipe for their favorite Summer dish.  Yay!
Pasta Salad With Salami and Mozzarella

This is a recipe I got from Real Simple magazine - I've gotten so many wonderful (and easy) recipes from that magazine, it's totally changed my cooking life you could say!  We make this at least once a week this time of year, I usually don't add the salami because the hubby isn't a fan, but sometimes I'll add it to just my portion.  It's great with or without the salami.  I generally double the recipe.  Here it is:
Pasta Salad with Salami and Mozzarella (via Real Simple)

2 cups gemelli (or other short pasta) - I usually use bowtie
2 cups chopped spinach
1 cup grape tomatoes (halved)
4 ounces fresh mozzarella, cut into pieces
2 ounces salami, cut into pieces
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
kosher salt and black pepper


1.Cook pasta according to the package directions; drain and rinse under cold water. Toss in a large bowl with the spinach, grape tomatoes, mozzarella, and salami.

2.Whisk together the olive oil, white wine vinegar, ½ teaspoon kosher salt, and ¼ teaspoon black pepper. Drizzle the salad with the vinaigrette before serving.

It's so easy and so yummy!  Check out what everyone else is making here!
