Grinder Sandwich Pasta Salad
I've been seeing a grinder sandwich recipe all over TikTok the last few weeks and I basically used the "salad" component of the sandwich as inspiration for this perfect summer pasta salad. I also added in diced salami and turkey deli meat, so it does in-fact taste SO much like a delicious deli sub, but in pasta salad form!!!
Obviously feel free to customize but I wouldn't change the red wine vinegar and mayo base and I would def make sure to use iceberg lettuce!! My favorite part besides the dressing and the pasta would definitely be the turkey! SO weird because I don't even eat deli meat, like ever... but it works SO well here.
Recipe makes enough for 4-5 sides of pasta salad!!

Just made this for a bbq - so good! And easy to make. Only mods were adding more salami and pepperoncinis and oregano. I did end up adding closer to 12oz of pasta to take in more of the dressing (made it using GF pasta so not sure if that made a difference). Might use slightly less than 1/2 cup of red wine vin next time to make it less runny but the taste and texture are so good.

Thanks!!! Glad you enjoyed! I used GF pasta too and ate it at room temp!! I do think it soaks up a bit less of the sauce!

If I make this ahead of time so I mix it before I put it in the fridge or just lay the ingredients on top of each other and mix before serving.

I just made this to take to the beach tomorrow with a friend. It is absolutely delicious! I can't wait to share the recipe with my friends. 😊

I’m not even sure how I stumbled upon this recipe, but I’m so glad that I did. This pasta salad is incredibly delicious! I’ve made it so many times and brought it to so many parties and it’s always a huge hit! I’m usually altering recipes to get them to taste the way I want, but this one is perfect as is. Bravo!

THIS IS SO GOOD!!! I basically doubled everything because it was easier to use the whole package of pasta/meat/cheese etc. and I'm so glad I did. New favorite recipe!!

Just one note: I would use a lot more salami than what is called for. But it does feel like you can just use any sandwich meat to your liking! So so delicious.

One easy way to beef up the meat and cheese is just to ask the deli to cut the slices really thick. I am not a huge fan of pepperoncini, so I subbed in diced green bell pepper instead. I also love black olives on my Italian sandwiches, so I added those in too.
