Preparation

Step 1

Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain in a colander, rinse with cold water, and drain again.

Transfer to a large bowl, add tomatoes, cucumber, olives, onions, and feta cheese. Toss together.

Make the Greek salad dressing. Place all ingredients in a jar with lid, and shake well to mix. Store in the refrigerator.

Cook’s Note: This is a vinaigrette. For a creamy dressing, puree all ingredients but the oil in a blender or food processor. Then, while the blender is running, carefully add the oil. Mix until creamy. Fresh herbs are best, but I didn’t have any, so I used dried.

Drizzle dressing over pasta; toss to coat. Cover and chill in refrigerator for 2 hours to 24 hours. Sprinkle black pepper and oregano. Makes 4-6 servings.

Cook’s Note: Play with the ingredients and adjust according to preference. There will be more dressing than you need for the salad. Save in the refrigerator for another day/salad.
