Greek Pasta Salad - Cook For Your Life

Servings: 4-6 Prep time: 20minutes

Greek Pasta Salad

Orrechiette, or ‘Little Ears’ is a great pasta choice for this fresh summer meal. Their little dips fill up with the veggies and their juices, making this a wonderfully tasty dish. It’s nutritious too. Using spinach instead of the usual lettuce adds iron and vitamin K, not to mention flavor.

1. Bring a pot of salted water to boil. Add the pasta and cook until al dente or according to package instructions. Drain well. Toss with 3 tablespoons of olive oil. Set aside to cool, stirring occasionally.

2. In a large bowl, toss together the cucumber, tomatoes, red onion, lemon zest, lemon juice, olives and 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Stir in the cooled pasta. Season with salt and pepper. Taste.


3. Top with spinach, crumbled feta cheese and mint. Toss just before serving at room temperature.

Ann’s Tips and Tricks

To be sure your pasta doesn’t overcook as it cools, cook it for 1 minute less than the package time.

If you can’t find orrechiette, use fusilli. They will trap the juices in their spirals.
