This Greek Pasta Salad recipe is easy to make, is loaded with plenty of flavor. Includes directions to make a simple homemade dressing.
I love pasta salads! They’re just great, easy sides, and you can make almost any flavor combo into a yummy pasta salad.
One of my favorite pasta salads, though, is this Greek Pasta Salad. The flavors are really light and refreshing, which is nice during the summer heat.
The dressing portion of the salad makes enough for a lightly dressed pasta salad. If you like a more heavily dressed salad, I would suggest doubling that portion of the recipe.
This recipe is also really easy to customize, so feel free to add or subtract ingredients according to your taste.
How to make Greek pasta salad
Cook the pasta according to the package instructions.
While the pasta is cooking, chop the vegetables.
