Creamy Greek-Style Pasta Salad

Total Time
Prep 5 hrs
Cook 0 mins

I recently developed this recipe, it's a full-flavored salad and not for anyone with plain palettes, the dressing is what really makes this salad --- feel free to add in other veggies of your choice, adjust the dressing and salad amounts to suit taste, plan ahead this salad must chill for 5 or more hours before serving, prep time includes chilling time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. For the dressing; in a bowl whisk together all ingredients until well blended adjusting amount to taste, then refrigerate until ready to use (the dressing may be made up to a day in advance).
  2. Boil the pasta shells in boiling water until al dente; drain and rinse under cold water; place into a large bowl.
  3. Add in onions, bell peppers, celery (if using) feta cheese, olives, tomatoes and cooked chicken; toss with a wooden spoon to combine.
  4. Add in the prepared dressing; toss well to combine.
  5. Add in Ranch dressing (start with 1/2 cup and add in more to taste).
  6. Add in more oregano if desired and season with salt and lots freshly ground black pepper.
  7. Cover and chill for 5 hours or more before serving.

This was a wonderful blend of Greek flavors! It's a perfect meal for a hot summer evening. I was a bit skeptical about the ranch dressing, but it lends a nice creaminess without an overwhelming flavor. I think some artichoke hearts would make a nice addition.
