Greek Pasta Salad Recipe

A Greek Pasta Salad Recipe is not really a Greek dish. It is more of a Greek style pasta recipe. But who cares! It is a delicious, healthy and quick pasta salad to make!

I like to trade the common white pasta for a whole wheat version- it is healthier, but the “rustique flavor” is also giving it a more "authentic" Greek taste, I'm imagining my favorite Cretan Rusk Salad...

By adding salt and pepper to the vegetables in advance, the spices will draw out juice from the vegetables and create a very tasty dressing.

This pasta salad is perfect to bring as a potluck, as picnic food, to serve on a summer salad buffet or as a side dish for barbeques.
