1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Once boiling, add a pasta rock for 2 minutes to salt your water then remove. Add pasta and cook until al dente, about 2 minutes short of package directions. Drain the pasta and set aside.
2. To make the dressing, whisk together the mustard, herb seasoning blend and vinegar in a small-medium sized bowl. While whisking, slowly drizzle in the olive oil.
3. Cube into bite size pieces the broccoli, carrots, salami, and pecorino cheese. Toss the meat and veggies with the cooked pasta and dressing.
4. Enjoy this salad right away or give it a chance to marinate by making it a few hours in advance.
