Antipasto Pasta Salad With Olives and Artichokes

antipasto pasta dish with olives

 You are going to love this easy to make simple Italian pasta salad, especially if you love olives like I do!

What could be easier or tastier than assembling an antipasto pasta salad using the fixings from a salad bar or your own fixings bar? 

It simply involves cooking up a little pasta, mixing it up with fixings, and enjoying. It's easy, yet very tasty. 

In fact, it is so tasty and appealing, it's good enough to serve to company! 

My favorite add-ins are the marinated artichokes, olives, chickpeas and cherry tomatoes and then an oil-free Italian dressing.

The concept is easy. Make your pasta and then mix it with whatever you find on the salad bar. Then add Italian dressing ! 

I love pasta and often make it on the spur of the moment. 
Once cooked, these simple additions make the pasta dish into something special.

The pastabilities are endless for this wonderful plant-based gluten-free meal!

I'd like to take this opportunity to wish all of my followers a wonderful happy new year! May all your wishes come true!

1. I use gluten-free pasta
2. This is delicious for a party
3. I toss it in Italian dressing ( I use a oil-free dressing, but use what you like)- this makes it!!


  1. That looks AMAZING! I also love olives but Doug isn't as big a fan. Whole Foods has a great olive bar with roasted garlic and peppers as well.
    Happy New Year to you and your family.

  2. I do LOVE olives! Happy New Year, Judee!

  3. This dish is delightfully colorful! And of course I love that you said "The pastabilities are endless." 😁

  4. You had me at olives and artichokes!
