Light garden greek pasta salad

My daughter and I both love traditional greek salads, but we were having a family dinner with 3 fussy eating kids, lol, so we decided to make it a cool pasta salad. The kids don't like feta cheese, ( it stinks like feet they said, lol,) But they love pasta salads. I came up with this and served little bowls of crumbled feta for those who liked to add it to the salad. I wasn't able to get a pic of the salad since everyone dug in before I had a chance, but i will be making this again soon and will make sure to get a pic!!
