How to Make Farfalle of Arete (Greek Pasta Salad)

Step-by-Step

  1. FOR DRESSING:
    Combine all ingredients and whisk together. Taste for salt and pepper and adjust as needed. This will make a lot of dressing, so don't just pour it over the salad.
  2. Cook, drain, and cool pasta.
  3. Add pasta, spinach, and all other vegetables and cheese to a large bowl. Toss to combine ingredients evenly.
  4. Add dressing, about a half cup and toss. This is where you decide how much or how little dressing you desire.
  5. You could add grilled chicken, grilled shrimp, or grilled tenderloin to make this a main dish. This is a very cool dish for those hot summer days.
