Ingredients

  • 3/4 pound rotini pasta
  • 1 large cucumber, diced (peal it if desired)
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 cup kalamata olives, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup red onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup feta cheese, crumbled or cubed
  • 1 cup canned chickpeas, drained
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Greek Salad Dressing

  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons crumbled feta
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Cook pasta according to package directions in salted water. Drain and run under cold water until cooled.
  • Prepare the Greek salad dressing: add all the dressing ingredients in a mason jar and shake well until combined. Or whisk vigorously until well-combined.
  • In a large bowl, toss the cooked pasta, cucumbers, green bell peppers, tomatoes, olives, red onions, feta cheese, and chickpeas. Note: I like to peel the chickpeas by rubbing them with my hands when rinsing them.
  • Add the dressing and toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy!
