    Chef #697008's Note:

    Colorful, fresh, non-complicated pasta salad that's great for potlucks or as part of a holiday feast. Best when served at room temperature. The feta cheese is a wonderful compliment to the fresh veggies!

      This was a good recipe for a light side dish.I made a few changes. I ommitted the feta cheese and substituted shredded jack cheese. I also left the out the olives. I squeezed a lemon into the vinegar/oil dressing for a fresh flavor and added fresh chopped parsley. I'll make it again.
