Greek Salad - Minnesota Style

Since I'm not quite sure what all goes into an "official" Greek salad, I decided to put "Minnesota Style" behind the title since my oldest daughter and I make this on a regular basis - it's easy, delicious and different from the meat and potatoes that we normally cook. Enjoy!

Serves:

4-6

Prep:

45 Min

Ingredients

1 box
penne pasta
1 pkg
feta cheese
2 bottle
greek vinaigrette salad dressing (or 1 if eating right away)
1
cucumber
1 pkg
small tomatoes
1
leek
1 can(s)
black olives
1
green pepper
1
whatever veggie you like!

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cook the penne pasta, drain and let soak in cold water for about 15 minutes. (After the 15, take out of the cold bath and let dry)
2
Ready the veggies! Dice the cucumbers and green pepper into larger chunks - I usually cut the cucumber about 1/2 " wide, then divide into 4). Slice the leeks, wash and dry the baby tomatoes and open and open and drain the black olives.
3
Combine it all - the pasta, the veggies prepared above, the package of feta cheese and ONE bottle of the Greek vinaigrette dressing.
4
Eat immediately or is wonderfully good after being refrigerated. If you refrigerate, you will find that the dressing has soaked into the pasta. Just add a bit more dressing when you're about to serve after refrigeration to re-coat.
