My guests left this salad on their plates uneaten...until my daughter politely told me that it had no flavor and that I should add some dressing. I did and it was much better. I would make this again with a few tweaks.
ZWT6: Made this of the Kids Greek Challenge. It was really tasty and full of flavors and colors!
A wonderful change from the mayo-slopped variety. I used some lovely kalamata olives and added some red onion to bump it up a notch. Superb light flavor and a great summer side dish. Made for ZWT6 by a Looney Spoon Phoodie.
I definitely agree with Kumquat the Cat's friend. It is weird to look at a pasta salad recipe and only see 3T. of "wet" ingredients, but between the grape tomatoes I used, the kalamatas, and the really soft feta I had, it wasn't dry at all! This made for a yummy lunch, and the leftovers look appetizing for today. :) Thanks for posting, made for ZWT4.
This recipe falls under the category of "Sometimes Simple is Best"! I used whole wheat penne, kalamata olives, cut back on the olive oil and used low-fat feta to save on calories. I thought I was going to miss the lack of vinegar and/or spices, but I didn't one bit! This also gets points because it's so quick and easy. I cooked it on the hottest day in NYC this year! I paired it with Sarah_Jayne's Greek zucchini recipe and it went great together! Thanks for a lovely meal.
