A delicious pasta salad that makes enough for a crowd.   A very colorful and a healthy salad.

Salad:

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound Rotini or Penne pasta, cooked according to package directions (I used whole wheat pasta)

  • 1 cup English cucumber, diced (also called hothouse cucumber)
  • 1/3 cup red onion, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • ¾ cup Kalamata olives, pitted and halved
  • ½ cup banana peppers, chopped, optional
  • 1-1/2 cups feta cheese, diced or crumbled

Dressing:

  • 1 cup olive oil
  • ¾ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons dried Italian seasoning
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon salt


In a large bowl, combine all of the salad ingredients and toss together.

In another bowl, combine olive oil, balsamic vinegar, Italian seasoning, pepper and salt.  Whisk to combine.  

Pour dressing over salad and stir well to coat.  Chill.
