It's Greek To Me! Pasta Salad!

Colleen Sowa


This is one of our favorite pasta salads! The flavors just "Pop" in your mouth!

I created this recipe a few years ago after having something similar in Chicago while dinning out... it was a hit the first time I made it and is requested several times a year.

This is a show stopper to take to a pot luck! Everyone always asks for the recipe!
