Ingredients

  • 1 cup dry pasta, rotini or penne - you can use whole grain if you wish
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes sliced in half
  • 1 small cucumber, about 1/2 cup chopped in 1/2 inch pieces
  • 3 tablespoons sliced kalamata olives
  • 2 tablespoons capers
  • 1 tablespoon oregano
  • 2 ounces feta crumbled

For the dressing

Instructions

For the salad

  • Boil the pasta as instructed and drain. If pre-boiling pasta, add a bit of olive oil after boiling, so the pasta does not stick together.
  • In a large bowl add the pasta, tomatoes, cucumber, olives and capers and gently mix.
  • Add the dressing and sprinkle over the oregano, toss the salad.
  • Sprinkle the feta and gently toss again and serve.

Dressing

  • In a small bowl mix the with a fork the olive oil and vinegar (it should thicken)

Notes

* Salt in not needed as the olives, capers and feta already have salt.
