And what is a picnic without pasta salad?

I like to make mine with fresh ingredients: tomatoes, cucumbers, red onion and chopped oregano for just the right amount of spice. But to be honest, what makes this pasta salad stand out from others are a couple of other ingredients, kalamata olives and crumbled feta cheese.

It’s a pasta salad with a decidedly Greek sensibility, the strong flavors mixing with pasta to please everyone at your picnic or potluck and make you the star.



Yield: 6 to 8 servings
