Scale

Ingredients

  • For the Salad
  • 8 oz pasta of choice (I used bowtie), cooked and cooled
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large cucumber, diced
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes, diced
  • 1/4 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup pitted Kalamata olives, halved
  • 6 ounces crumbled feta cheese
  • For the Dressing
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp ground pepper
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 tsp dried oregano

Instructions

  1. Cook pasta according to directions on the package. Drain and rinse with cool water to stop cooking. Drizzle with 1 Tbsp on olive oil and toss to coat to prevent pasta from sticking.
  2. While pasta cooks, wash and prep salad ingredients.
  3. In a small bowl, add all dressing ingredients and whisk to mix thoroughly.
  4. Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Serve room temperature or chilled.
