A Great 20 Minute Greek Pasta Salad

Here is a great pasta salad recipe I got off Pinterest.  The recipe is from the website: bakerbynature.com. The author is Ashley Manila. It is quick and easy to make.  Saves well in fridge.  You can also add more veggies if you wish.  I think broccoli and carrots would make a great addition. Great to take to work for lunch, or as a quick snack.  I also used less dressing than the recipe called for. So experiment with that. Enjoy!

Ingredients

Farfalle Pasta (1 box)

1 Cucumber

2 cups Cherry Tomatoes

2 cups (about 8 leaves) romaine lettuce chopped

3/4 cup fresh parsley (I skipped this ingredient)

1/2 cup kalamata olives, pitted

1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion

1 (8oz) container crumbled feta

2 cloves garlic minced

1/3 cup olive oil

3 Tablespoons red wine vinegar

2 Teaspoons granulated sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt to taste

1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

1 cup tzatziki sauce (I used Holy Land premade tzatziki)

Instructions

  1. Cook pasta according to directions.
  2. As pasta cooks, chop vegetables and make the dressing.
  3. Halve the cucumbers lengthwise and remove the seeds with a small spoon. Chop cucumber in small half-moons.
  4. Cut cherry tomatoes in half, chop romaine lettuce (I bought pre-chopped), chop parsley (I skipped the parsley), slice olives in half, thinly slice red onion and set aside.
  5. To make dressing, combine in a small bowl,  garlice, olive oil, vinegar, pepper, sugar, salt, and tzatziki sauce.
  6. Drain pasta and rinse with cold water for about a minute. Add dressing and veggies. Toss. Chill until cool then serve.
