    KyAmy's Note:

    I make this recipe mostly in late Spring and especially during the Summer months using cucumbers and cherry tomatoes, fresh from my own garden. I usually make enough for at least two or three servings so I'll have something for a quick, easy brown-bag lunch or perhaps a light dinner. This recipe is easy on the budget, relatively healthy, and is a great side dish. I'll sometimes have a small bowl of this salad with a toasted slice of baguette bread, lightly brushed with extra virgin olive oil and rubbed with a fresh garlic clove and a sprinkling of oregano, and a glass of my favorite wine. Bon Appetit!!

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 4-6

    Yield:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cook rotini as directed on package to al dante; Drain and run pasta under cold water.
    2. 2
      Drizzle italian dressing over pasta, mixing slowly so as not to break apart the pasta pieces. Add in tomatoes, black olives, cucumber, and 5 tablespoons of the feta cheese. Continue mixing ingredients until well-coated.
    3. 3
      Sprinkle remaining feta cheese over pasta mixture and top with almonds. (Instead of almonds I've used Melissa's Salad Sprinkles. This could not be located in RecipeZaar as a recognized ingredient but I wanted to record it in the directions as another option for a salad topper.).
    4. 4
      NOTE: If you don't care for feta cheese, try using Parmesan cheese instead. It tastes just as good and gives the salad a somewhat different flavor. Use only four to five tablespoons instead and mix in as given above.
