Greek Pasta Salad


We had a picnic to go to that was bring a dish to share. I wanted to bring something that was a bit different than normal pasta salad, potato salad, or beans. I had feta, pasta, and some veggies in my fridge so this was the salad. I found an organic Greek salad dressing.  It had whole cloves of garlic in it. I thought I would give it a try.

Verdict:

The hardest part of making this salad was dicing all the vegetables into small pieces. It was super simple to put together and the dressing turned out to be delicious. I did add a bit of extra oregano, garlic powder, salt and black pepper but that was to our tastes.  Use your favorite dressing or make your own! Make it how you best like it.
