Greek Pasta Salad

2013-02-14

Tangy feta and crunchy veggies get extra body from rotini in this classic Greek-inspired pasta salad. Easy to make and best served chilled or at room temperature, it’s a perfect picnic dish.

Ingredients:

10 oz. rotini, cooked and chilled
2 medium tomatos, cored, seeded and cut into ½ inch dice
1 small cucumber, cut into ½ inch dice
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 cup feta cheese, crumbled
3 tbsp. chopped fresh oregano
3 tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
3 tbsp. red wine vinegar
¼ cup olive oil
Salt and freshly cracked black pepper, to taste

Method:

Toss all ingredients in a large bowl, season with salt and pepper and serve chilled.

    I dont necessarily want recipes just ideas. I was trying to make a list of foods I could send with him to work so he would never have to have the same lunch in a single week. I would prefer food that don’t have to be cooked or reheated, ones that are good cold.

    So far I have got sandwiches, turkey wraps, sushi rolls, potato salad, pasta salad, fruits and veggies, and tuna salad with crackers.

    I always feel like yoghurt, ice cream, pasta and all those healthy foods! The idea of curry, greasy foods, coffee and cigarette smoke make me wretch. What have you gone off and what do you crave?

    I am looking for a dressing to mix in with a cold pasta salad. Nothing too spicy, but a little spice/sourness is good. Nothing creamy either. What’s a good idea?
    Doesnt have to be a dressing… a recipe for a healthy cold pasta salad is good too!

    I’ve had it from the salad bar at some restaurant. It’s rotini pasta (I think), green olives, pimentos, black olives…what else goes in it? What is the liquid/oil? Thanks!

    and maybe tomatoes or black olives..?

    I made a greek pasta salad this week and it was really good. I love the ingredients. I want to make something else, but something healthier and with less calories. Any ideas? Something simple. Like maybe something with ground turkey?

    I’m about to start making my own concoctions(sp?) but I can’t think of anything really good but really healthy, and pasta salad is (unfortunately) not.

    My best friend’s baby shower is Sunday, and today is the only day I was able to make the pasta salad. Since I made it tonight, will it still be okay on Sunday?

    It’s a greek pasta salad – feta cheese, oil, vinegar, tomato, red bell peppers, green onions and black olives…

    I coat my frying pan with it when I cook and I like to think it’s doing me good. A greek friend of mine uses it the way I use water – to boil his vegetables and he’s as thin as a rake! The mediterraneans seem to ladle it on their food. Can eating a lot of oil be good?

    I figure a greek salad would still go well with italian pastas…..what do you think? I want to bring a unique salad without the lettuce and I found a greek salad recipie……would it be ok?

    I was suggested salmon, but I never made anything with salmon, and I’m afraid I can’t get it right.

    Anyway, my date is coming late coz the flight lands at 9pm. Maybe some salad as eating a lot too late is also not good. But a salad I’m afraid won’t be too impressive.

    I am having a pool party- cook out for my son’s 1st birthday. I am planning on making burgers, hot dogs and sausage. I am wondering how much food I should make for the sides. I am planning on making a greek pasta salad, potato salad, mac salad and baked beans. How many pounds should I make?
