Notes

Tips for a Perfect Greek Pasta Salad
  1. If you are in a hurry, you can use 1 cup of bottled Greek Vinaigrette dressing instead of making your own dressing from scratch.
  2. Feel free to use any shape of pasta you prefer. I used lentil pasta, but any rotini pasta will work.
  3. If you have stored leftovers, make sure you have extra dressing at hand. You might find that your pasta is slightly dry, so an extra drizzle of dressing will bring your dish back to life!
  4. Cook your pasta until just past al dente. It is important that you don't overcook or undercook your pasta.
  5. Make sure you season the pasta properly. Unlike warm dishes, cold servings may mute the flavors; and thus require a lot more seasoning.
