Perfect topped with crumbled feta cheese and a few additional olives.My husband and I both adore Greek food. I adapted this recipe from an older salad recipe on our site that uses quinoa in place of pasta. I love both, but there’s something about a good pasta salad that I just love in the summertime. This Greek Pasta Salad fits the bill! I also added a bit of lemon juice to the vinaigrette, which tastes just wonderful. Enjoy!
