I made a Greek pasta salad earlier this summer. It was a nice change from the typical Italian pasta salad you encounter at every picnic. This is a quick an easy recipe to throw together on a whim.

Greek Pasta Salad

Greek Pasta Salad

1 pkg. tri-color farfalle pasta, 2 c. of Greek salad dressing (more of less to taste), 2 c. Feta cheese, 2 c. kalmata olives, 4 tomatoes diced, 2 cucumbers diced, 1 tsp. mince garlic, 1 c. banana peppers,

Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and rinse. Mix together all ingredients (except Feta) into pasta. Add Feta and gently toss. Keep salad chilled until ready to serve.

*I couldn’t get ahold of kalmata olives this time, so I used regular black olives.
