This is the perfect salad for a BBQ or family gathering, I like to use this as a stand-by at BBQs for my beloved vegetarian friends -- but have also thrown in some chicken and served it as a main dish with hot french bread and garlic sautéed mushrooms, red peppers and onions on the side.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil chosen pasta al dente, drain (stir in some butter or olive oil to keep it loose) and allow pasta to cool.
  2. Combine all dressing ingredients into a blender or food processor and pulse until pine nuts have broken down and all ingredients combine (Important! Add/subtract dressing ingredients too taste!).
  3. Combine cooled pasta, feta, roasted red peppers and cucumbers in a large mixing bowl.
  4. Gently stir in dressing.
  5. Chill for around 30 minutes to give flavors a chance to meld.
  6. Cheers!

We loved the flavours and colours of this salad! We don't have a food processor, so we added the parsley, basil, parmesan and pine nuts directly to to the pasta mixture and made a dressing out of the rest. Thanks for sharing such a great recipe. :)
