Classic Greek Pasta Salad (Recipe)


✅ 1 cup dry pasta (rotini or penne – you can use whole grain if you wish)

✅ 1 cup cherry tomatoes sliced in half

✅  red onion sliced

✅ 1 small cucumber (about 1/2 cup chopped in 1/2 inch pieces)

✅ 3 tablespoons sliced kalamata olives

✅ 2 tablespoons capers

✅ 1 tablespoon oregano

✅ 2 ounces feta crumbled

For the dressing

✅ 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil (I use Kasandrinos)

✅ 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar


1️⃣ Boil the pasta as instructed and drain. If pre-boiling pasta, add a bit of olive oil after boiling, so the pasta does not stick together.

2️⃣ In a large bowl add the pasta, tomatoes, cucumber, olives and capers and gently mix.

3️⃣ Add the dressing and sprinkle over the oregano, toss the salad.

4️⃣ Sprinkle the feta and gently toss again and serve.


1️⃣ In a small bowl mix the with a fork the olive oil and vinegar (it should thicken)
