    I’ll be making this for supper tomorrow! This is exactly what I have been looking for. I’m not a picky eater by any means, but I can’t stand red onion and although I do like cucumbers, I’m not a fan of them in salads. This is simple and, except for the feta (I’ll be using mozzarella), has everything I like. What a perfect complement to the grilled NY strips steaks we’ll be having with it. Thanks for sharing!

    Well, what can I say? I couldn’t wait for today to make the salad. I caved in last night and made a double batch. I brought a container of it for lunch today and I’ve already eaten it (and it’s only 8:30 in the morning!). This pasta salad is perfect.

    I commented above that I don’t like red onion or feta cheese, and what I meant by that was alll the recipes I searched contained those ingredients and this one does not. Of course, there is no law that says you have to put those items in, but I just liked the fact that this recipe didn’t even have them on the list.

    The great thing about pasta salads is that you can tweak them by adding or omitting any ingredient that you darn well please. I added chickpeas and cubed havarti to this one, along with the tomatoes and black olives.

    I work at a facility that produces private-label salad dressings and marinades. We often get free bottles of whatever’s being made that day. Yesterday, it was Greek vinaigrette, and that was my inspiration to search for a good Greek pasta salad. And this is where I found it. I give it 5 starts out of 5! Love, love, love this recipe!
