Ingredients

Scale

Greek Pasta Salad

  • 2 cups dry pasta (I used Trottole but any curly or tube-type pasta will work)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 24 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 1 block (7oz/200g) vegan feta, cut into small cubes
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 3/4 cup green bell pepper, chopped
  • 3/4 cup kalamata olives, halved
  • 1/4 cup red onion, diced
  • 1 sprig fresh oregano leaves, chopped

Dressing


Instructions

  1. Cook the pasta: Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil, the add pasta and cook until al dente. Drain, and then set cooked pasta aside to cool. Pop into the fridge or freezer for a few minutes.
  2. Cook the tomatoes & garlic: Into a skillet over medium heat, at olive oil, tomatoes and garlic, sauté until tomatoes and garlic are gently cooked, about 5 minutes. If you prefer, you can keep the tomatoes and garlic raw.
  3. Prepare the dressing: Into a small bowl, add pasta salad dressing ingredients and stir to combine.
  4. Make the Pasta Salad: Into a salad bowl, add cooked pasta, tomato and garlic, vegan feta, spinach, green bell pepper, kalamata olives, red onion and oregano. Drizzle with dressing and stir to combine.
  5. Serve: Serve cold or at room temperature as a meal or side.
  6. Store: Store in an airtight container in the fridge and consume within three days.

Notes

  • Pasta: 1). Trottole was used for this recipe, but any curly or tube-type pasta will work. 2). Use gluten-free pasta if desired.
