The no-pasta pasta salad!

I’m all about simple, easy, and quick meals. The reason I’m all about them is because I don’t have the time or attention span to plan out extravagant meals and spend hours prepping…

Some people may say the way I eat is boring…but keeping things simple and quick as much as I can helps keep me (and my family) on track with our nutrition goals!

I made this ‘pasta’ salad last night – and before I share my recipe…just know that I’m not giving myself a pat on the back for thinking this up because it’s really not hard. At all. However, I am proud of the fact I added some veggies in because I typically don’t do that.  I hate most vegetables and do realize ‘hate’ is a strong word but it’s what best describes my feelings towards vegetables.

Anyways, here it is! This is a great dish that can be used for a quick lunch or dinner…or even as a side!



  1. Green pepper
  2. Pepperoni
  3. Cheddar cheese
  4. Hard salami
  5. Carrots
  6. Olive Garden salad dressing

Now, this is just what I added. Feel free to add anything else you’d like! We follow a keto-ish type of meal plan so I opted not to added pasta, but go ahead and add some if you’d like!

  • Chop all ingredients
  • Add to mixing bowl
  • Top with Olive Garden dressing (I was so happy to see this dressing only has 2 grams of carbs and 2 grams of sugar per serving!!)
  • Mix everything together and ENJOY!

Simple, right?

Let me know if you’ll give this a try!

Talk soon,

Pam xoxo
