Greek Pasta Salad

A refreshing summer salad is something that is light and full of flavor. This is a perfect for picnics or as a side dish with grilled chicken or beef. Or as my wife likes, make this a meal on its own.

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 lbs campanelle pasta
  • 1/2 cup red onion finely diced
  • 3 celery stalks finely diced
  • 1 lb of cherry tomatoes sliced in half
  • 1/4 cup pepperoncini thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp diced garlic
  • 4 tbsp olive oil (make sure it is high quality)
  • 3 tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 4 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 6-8 sprigs of fresh oregano, stem removed and finely chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Crumbled feta

Steps:

  • Cook the pasta until al dente.
  • Shock in cold water, if needed use some ice.
