           This is a variation on the Italian classic 'Caprese', turning one of my favorite salads into a one dish dinner. 

Caprese Pasta Salad with Salami

Total time: 25 minutes 
   Salami packs an enormous amount of taste into a very small package.  The Balsamic Vinaigrette enhances the sweetness of the salami and the mellowness of the mozzarella.
