This delicious Greek Pasta Salad is filled with rotini pasta, tomatoes, cucumber, olives, and feta cheese and is covered in a tasty greek dressing! It’s our new go-to pasta salad and is perfect especially in spring and summer.

Pasta Salad with Feta

I have always enjoyed pasta salad and salad recipes but find myself craving them more in the Spring and Summer months. We have the go-to salads and pasta dishes we’ve made for years but being on a Greek-food kick, I wanted to try a Greek Pasta Salad version.

Many of the ingredients that you can typically find in Greek food includes:

  • olives
  • herbs
  • feta (my favorite!!)
  • tomatoes

I wanted to make sure all of these and more were in the recipe to give it all the Greek flavor I love so much! We added some cilantro, cucumbers, our favorite tri-color rotini and a delicious Greek dressing. The result was amazing and had so much flavor that we knew others would love it too.

I’m happy to report that it was a hit and has become one of our go-to pasta dishes. It doesn’t have to be served with a Greek-themed meal but is the perfect side to any meal, BBQ or get together.

Greek Pasta

Using the perfect dressing is key for this Greek Pasta. You can find loads of different options at the store, but my current favorite is this Light Greek Vinaigrette from Cardini’s. It’s not too heavy but has all the delicious flavor that comes in a Greek dressing.

Having said that, I’d love to hear what your current favorite Greek dressings are. Whether it’s more of a dressing or vinaigrette, it should enhance all of the flavors already found in this pasta dish, and we hope you like it as much as we did. 😉

    We have the same “discussion” about when to celebrate my Grand daughter’s birthday. I say she was born the day after Feb 28, thus March 1. Others have that “birthday in February” thought. We are all just glad she is happy, healthy, and a truly lovely child. Thank you for all the great recipes.

    What is the garnish on the top? Parsley? Cilantro? I kept looking for where that was mentioned, but couldn’t find it.

      Lil' Luna

      We added cilantro. It’s an option or you can add your favorite herb. Hope you like it!

      You can find it in your grocery store & I am sure there are recipes for Greek dressing. I would look on pinterest 🙂
