Greek Pasta Salad

greek-pasta-salad-close

This hearty salad is chock full of veggies and bursting with flavours. If you want to up the protein, bake a couple chicken breasts and toss bite-size pieces into the salad. For even more flavour, make twice the amount of dressing and marinate the chicken in it overnight. For the best result, let the fully-made salad chill in the fridge for roughly 30 minutes.

  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic

  • 10 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • 1 green pepper, chopped
  • 1 red pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 cucumber, sliced
  • 1/2 cup sliced black olives
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese

PREPARATION:

  1. Cook the pasta according to the package. Rinse with cold water and set aside.
  2. Whisk together the red wine vinegar, lemon juice, garlic, oregano, pepper, and olive oil. Set this aside as well.
  3. Combine the remaining ingredients in a large bowl, pour the dressing over the salad, and toss thoroughly.
