A nice twist on a pasta salad. Something different and super easy.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

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. The Test Kitchen

How to Make Greek Pasta Salad

Step-by-Step

  1. Cook pasta according to directions.
  2. Drain and set aside. Let cool.
  3. Combine dressing ingredients; set aside.
  4. Prepare the olives, tomatoes, cucumbers, spinach, sun-dried tomatoes and onion.
  5. Combine with the pasta.
  6. Mix in the dressing and pepper.
  7. Add the Feta cheese last.
  8. Mix in the Feta cheese.
  9. Refrigerate and serve.
  10. 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.
