Greek Pasta Salad

greek salad 3

One of the great things about summer is the food. I know, I know it’s technically spring but it dang sure feels like summer here in Georgia. I eat a lot of salads and pasta salad is one of my favorites. I can eat this once a week and be a happy girl. The black olives that I use are oil cured. You can find those in your local deli and if you can’t canned black olives are fine too. Just be sure to drain them.

Ingredients

  • 1 box of rotini pasta
  • 1 cup of grape tomatoes, rinsed
  • 1/2 cup of olives
  • 1 cucumber seeded & chopped
  • 1/4 cup of purple onions
  • 1 package of feta cheese
  • 1/2 cup of peperoncini peppers drained & sliced
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup prepared Italian dressing

 

Directions

1. Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and chill.

    I bet this is perfect for the summer, not to heavy, cool, and I imagine it to have a bit of tanginess to it that would be refreshing.

      I hope it turned out well! I usually double the feta cheese because it’s so yum!
