Paleo & Whole30 Pasta Salad: as in low-carb and keto pasta salad, use zucchini noodles or spaghetti squash instead of the pasta, skip the feta to make it dairy free, and be extra sure that the salami, olives and artichoke hearts are free from additives or sugars.
GAPS or SCD Pasta Salad: sub zucchini noodles or spaghetti squash for pasta and use grilled chicken in place of salami.
