1/2 lb cubed provolone cheese (optional)
1/2 lb sliced pepperoni
1/3 cup sliced black olives

3/4 cup pompeian red wine vinegar - this brand is excellent in this dish -

1 tablespoon oregano
1 teaspoon salt
1/3 teaspoon pepper

instructions

mix together dressing first and set aside until sugar is dissolved completely

slice the sliced pepperoni circles in half and separate slices
mix together with pasta and chopped items except the provolone cheese
pour dressing over it all and mix well
chill well
add provolone cheese to salad before serving otherwise it gets soggy
you may have to add extra red wine vinegar or olive oil to get it to the desired consistency
some people like it moist others on the drier side
this is guaranteed not to last long before it is completely devoured
