Greek Pasta Salad

I’ve been making this recipe for Greek Pasta Salad since my early 20s. Not only is it easy to make, but it’s always well received at family functions and at our own dinner table. When I make this salad, there is rarely any leftovers. You can double (or triple) the recipe to serve a larger crowd.

Any kind of pasta will do. I like the look of the rotini noodles, but have also used bowtie pasta for this recipe in the past.

If you enjoy the flavour of Greek salad, give this pasta salad a try! It’s fresh and delicious and a recipe that I personally keep coming back to summer after summer. Really you could eat this any time of year, but summer seems to be the season of pasta salad don’t you think?

Greek Pasta Salad- one of my all-time favorite pasta salad recipes. Don't count on any leftovers with this recipe!
