This past weekend, for the first time in what felt like aaages, the forecast didn’t call for rain. So with the promise of a sunny Saturday my friends decided to have a last minute BBQ. I was told to bring a side dish. At first I thought I would make my grilled corn salad that I posted a little while ago. However, when I got to the grocery store- they had no corn! I had to think fast and sticking with the salad theme I landed on a pasta salad.
This recipe is super easy and can be adapted to suit your tastes.
1 package rotini, cooked
1/2 cup sundried tomatoes, chopped
1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, chopped
1/2 cup sliced black olives
1 cup cucumbers, chopped
1/4 cup red onion, chopped
1/2 cup- 1 cup crumbled feta cheese
1/2 cup-1 cup Italian dressing
Salt and Pepper to taste
Cook pasta according to package directions. While it is cooking, chop and combine tomatoes, olives, cucumbers, and onions in a large bowl. Drain pasta and add to bowl. Crumble in feta. Pour in dressing and stir to combine. Refrigerate for an hour.
It was a hit and the bbq! Enjoy!
