Greek Pasta Salad

Submitted by: Natalie Barabe Verbeke
Good summer salad. You may not want to put the whole quantity of sauce though, it can be a bit strong. Spring shape pasta works great!

Difficulty: Easy - for beginners

Preparation time:
Cooking time:

Ingredients

1 box (16oz) tricolor vegetable pasta
small (4oz) can of black olives, halved or sliced
1 cup feta cheese, crumbled
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
2 green onions, sliced
3/4 cup sliced pepperoni, thinly cut into strips
1 cup red bell peppers, sliced
salt/pepper to taste

Sauce:
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 1/2 tsp dried basil leaves
1 1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 to 1 tsp sugar


Method

1. Whisk together sauce ingredients well in advance. I would store it in the refrigerator while doing the rest to allow the spices to soften.

2. Cook pasta according to instructions, avoid over cooking. Rinse in cold water.

3. Mix all the other ingredients, add sauce and stir well to cover with sauce evenly.

4. Place in refrigerator for 2h-overnight, it really makes a difference. Then serve.

Notes: I usually omit the peppers and only use about 3/4 of the sauce. Make sure the Feta is well crumbled.
