Greek Pasta Salad

This has been my first summer living in Raleigh, NC and man, has it been relentlessly hot. It’s been pretty much in the high 90’s since mid-June. So the summer I’ve been making a lot of light food like salads. Of course, now that I’m finally getting around to posting a salad recipe, it’s finally starting to cool down. But I think I would make this Greek pasta salad all year round since it keeps well and I can eat it for lunch or use as a side for dinner.

Greek Pasta Salad

1 cup of macaroni or whatever small pasta you want
1 tomato diced
1 cucumber diced
1 small can of black olives (I think I only used about half the can)
1/2 red onion
feta cheese, crumbled (about 1/2 cup) I just eyeballed it

Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the macaroni as according to the package. Once macaroni is cooked, drain and rinse with cold water til it cools down. When macaroni has cooled, transfer to a bowl. Mix with tomato, cucumber, black olives, red onion and feta cheese. Add lemon dijon vinaigrette and mix well.

    This salad looks really good! I prefer a vinaigrette with something sweet so I might add some honey to mine. Thanks for the recipe!
