Greek Pasta Salad

This Greek pasta salad is such a treat! The crunch of the cucumbers with the salty bites of kalamata olives are my favorite part of this salad along with the yogurt based feta dressing. Enjoy this crisp, zesty salad!

How To Make Greek Pasta Salad

  1. Place cucumbers, cooked pasta, garbanzo beans, olives, Feta, salt and pepper into a large bowl. Stir to combine.
  2. To prepare dressing, place yogurt, buttermilk, Feta, shallots, olive oil, dill, thyme, garlic salt and black pepper into a blender. Blend until smooth and combined. Pour over salad then stir to combine. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

I used Fusilli whole wheat pasta from Delallo today.

You’ll need two hot house cucumbers. I quartered and thinly sliced them.

Place in a nice big mixing bowl and get ready to add the rest of the ingredients.

Oh how I love garbanzo beans/chick peas. Add those babies next.

Chop up some kalamata olives and stir in some Feta Cheese.

The dressing is a Greek yogurt and buttermilk based creamy dressing. There’s Feta Cheese, dill, thyme, garlic and more 🙂
