There's nothing ordinary about this pasta salad recipe. It's a delicious salad filled with a blend of Mediterranean flavors. The mixture of cucumber, olives, sun-dried tomatoes, and Feta cheese gives this pasta salad a distinct Greek flare. Its light dressing marinates the salad and the flavors marry together wonderfully. A beautiful and refreshing Greek salad for your next cookout.

    NOTE: I make an additional recipe of the dressing to add when serving or just double the recipe at the beginning. The pasta tends to soak up the dressing and it can be dry. I made this the day before to allow the flavors to mature.
