Greek Pasta Salad

Greek Pasta Salad

3/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive oil
2-3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
2 teaspoons dried Oregano
1 tablespoon minced garlic or garlic powder
Freshly cracked Pepper
Salt to taste

1 lb box of Tricolor Rotini Pasta - cooked and cooled
1 large cucumber, peeled, seeded and cut into wedges
1 red onion, minced
1 small red bell peppers, seeded, deribbed and thinly sliced crosswise into rings
2 ribs celery, thinly sliced across the stalk
1/2 lb Feta cheese, coarsely crumbled
20 Kalamata olives, halved
2-3 tablespoons of the juice from the olives

To make the dressing, in a bowl, whisk all ingredients together. Set aside.

In a large salad bowl, combine the cooled pasta, cucumber, celery, onion, Feta Cheese, olives, juice and bell peppers. Drizzle the dressing over the top and toss gently to mix. For the best result, we make the salad the night before to allow everything to marry together before serving.
