Greek Pasta Salad

Standard

I have never made a pasta salad but my mom absolutely loves them. She always gets the Italian Pasta Salad from the store. I decided to try out a Greek Pasta Salad. Next will be Italian πŸ™‚ I love that you can basically add whatever you want to a pasta salad. Some people add meats like salami or cubes of different cheese. I wanted to make this one a little more healthier so I went for only veggies.

Ingredients:

12 ounces pasta noodles (preferably Radiatore or something similar), cooked

1/2 Cup EVOO

1/4 Cup red wine vinegar

1 teaspoons dried oregano

1/2 teaspoon onion powder

2 garlic cloves, minced

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved

1/4 Cup pitted kalamata olives, halved

3 baby cucumbers, cut thin

1-2 Cup baby spinach

Feta Crumbles for topping (optional)

First you want to cook your pasta. Once cooked drain and run under cold water.

In a small bowl whisk together EVOO, vinegar, seasonings, garlic, and mustard. Add more salt and pepper to your taste.

Cut all veggies into halves or thin slices.

Using a large bowl combine pasta and veggies. Pour dressing over and toss until coated.

Since my mom does not like cheese, I served the feta cheese on the side to leave the cheese optional for all.

ENJOY!!

I have the passion to bake and love trying new recipes! I work at a school for children with disabilities as a manager of a cafe. This cafe allows the students learn the ability to work with the public and in the near future I am going to be able to bake with the students and let them learn about the love and passion there is to baking. :) I prefer baking over cooking although I do love to cook as well. I hardly ever repeat a recipe. I love my family, dogs, friends, and job. One day I will have my own bakery and I can not wait. Until then I am going to continue baking my little heart out.
