8 ounces spiral pasta, or whatever kind you like
1 hothouse cucumber, diced
1 small bell pepper, chopped. I used an orange one
3 plum tomatoes, chopped
1 jar of Calamata olives, drained
1 container of Feta Cheese

Greek Salad Dressing:

1 teaspoon of garlic powder
2 teaspoons of dried oregano, use Greek if possible
1/4 cup plain dry bread crumbs*
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 ounces of Feta Cheese
1/2 cup plus 3 Tablespoons red wine vinegar
1/3 cup corn oil**
2/3 cup olive oil (Greek, extra virgin)
Welcome to Pasta Palooza! Six new pasta recipes from six of your favorite food bloggers! It’s a wild and crazy pasta party! Have fun and let’s eat pasta!
I have created a new twist on one of my favorite salads. All of your favorite ingredients that are in a Greek Salad are now in this pasta salad. Opa!
Cook pasta according to package directions. Rinse under cold water after its drained and cooked. Add the rest of the ingredients and toss with Greek Salad dressing.
In a food processor or blender, mix all ingredients except oils and blend until smooth. While the food processor/blender is still on, slowly pour in the oil until dressing it’s combined. *The bread crumbs keep the oil and vinegar from separating. * *Corn oil keeps the dressing from becoming thick like mayonnaise. Cover and refrigerate for 24 hours before dressing your pasta salad. This dressing is fabulous on regular Greek Salads made with lettuce.
Salad dressing recipe adapted from St. Louis Post Dispatch.
