Salads are good year round. Our family has one pretty much every day for lunch (and sometimes breakfast ;). Yep! My husband loves salad for breakfast. This Greek pasta salad with Feta cheese is what we reach for as spring and summer veggies make their way into our garden.
How To Make Greek Pasta Salad With Feta Cheese
Roland Kalamata Olves, Pitted, 5LB (2.27kg) We like to prep it in advance, so we can make the salad in literally just minutes. We cook the pasta and chill it for up to 2 days.
Then, when we’re ready to eat, we just add our favorite veggies straight from the garden (or from the farmer’s market). The best vegetables to use for Greek pasta salad are tomatoes (we love heirloom tomatoes that come in lots of different colors, but you can use any tomato you have access to), cucumbers, onions (red onions give an added visual appeal), green and red bell peppers, etc.
You can add your favorite olives. We prefer Kalamata olives: YUM!
The dressing for this salad is AMAZING! Making a dressing with feta in it gives it a twist you need to try to believe 😉
Sour cream mixed with dill, oregano, garlic, lemon zest and juice, a pinch of salt, and some vinegar is creamy and full of flavor.
DRESS IT UP “Fancy and Fresh Greek Pasta Salad”
If you want to serve this for a special occasion, use a fancy flat pasta like Rombi by Bionaturae.
Instead of the chopped cucumbers, use a vegetable peeler to make cucumber ribbons, and replace the tomatoes with 1 pint halved multicolored heirloom cherry tomatoes. Instant fancy dinner salad 😉
