I think the last few years have been dips & appetizers. This summer, for some reason and not even planned, I have been drawn to creating delicious pasta salads. And here is another for your viewing pleasure:
Greek Pasta Salad!!!
Absolutely delicious. I made this guy for Kyle’s 4th of July BBQ and with each ingredient that was added to the bowl, the more and more excited I got for the finished project.
2 boxes of pasta – I chose the swirly multi-colored because, well, I feel it is festive.
1 can of artichokes
1 can of chickpeas
1 can of black olives
1 green pepper, red pepper, small red onion, & a handful or two of cherry tomatoes.
1 package of feta cheese
4 tablespoons of: olive oil, red wine vinegar & water
3 tablespoons of lemon juice
A generous sprinkle of oregano
4 crushed cloves of garlic
*I also added a few sprinkles of chili powder for a little kick. But that’s optional, not a necessity.
Then, cook the pasta, let it cool, make the dressing (put it to the side til the end), cut the veggies, & mix it all together. Voila! A beautiful salad that is surely a crowd pleaser 🙂
