I found a greek dressing recipe that we liked from Zaar (I think it was one of Kittencal's) and went from there. My DH loves just about anything with Feta on it. I don't use fresh basil enough to keep it on hand so I use a jarred kind (Polaner Chopped ready to use). The salad is best if you let the dressing chill but I have made it at the last minute also, I just make the dressing first and chill while doing the rest.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine the dressing ingredients and mix well, chill for at least 1 hour.
  2. Cook the pasta according to package directions and drain, do not rinse.
  3. Combine all ingredients, in a medium sized bowl with the pasta and tomatoes on top, pour a small amount of the dressing over the hot pasta and toss gently to coat. Add more dressing so that all ingredients are well coated.
  4. Chill before serving.

I cut this recipe down to serve 2, as DH & DS won't eat anything with feta. Both tried the recipe & DS said he actually thought it was good if he picked out the cheese. On the other hand, I thought it was delish! I loved the dressing & every ingredient in the salad had it's own flavor to contribute. Nothing was overpowering. I didn't realize I was out of celery (I had a peanut butter craving a few nights ago) so I added about a teaspoon of celery seed to the dressing. I'll make this again for myself or others I may be cooking for that don't have a fear of feta. ;) Thanks for another super recipe, greksgirl! Made & enjoyed for Fall 2009 Pick A Chef. You've been adopted! :)
