In Your Face Chilled Pasta Salad

recipe grid showing in your face pasta salad ingredients

 

Chilled Italian pasta salad is an easy Summer go to that works in just about every occasion. There are lots of similar recipe formulas out there, but we love our bold version that uses cubes of spicy In Your Face cheddar, fresh herbs and garlic in a quick scratch-made italian dressing, and chunks of pepperoni and salami.

The flavors of this salad get even tastier after a night in the fridge, making for  leftovers! Get the recipe here.
