I found this my latest Cookbook Digest (which says this is in a cookbook called "Secrets of Light Latin Cooking") and tried it immediately. I used feta cheese instead of goat cheese and it tasted great to me.

I used Feta also, this is a great tasting salad! I didn't have Penne pasta in but had some Orzo in I needed to use up, it worked great! The combination of olives, feta and cherry tomatoes is wonderful and of course the fresh basil is a great finish!and the dressing was perfect with it, Thanks for saharing a keeper!
