Shrimp Pasta Salad With Feta, Sun-dried Tomatoes and Olives

Total Time

Prep 30 mins
Cook 2 hrs 15 mins

Our favorite pasta salad chock-full of things we love! Can be made without the shrimp, but with the shrimp you've only got to add a loaf of crusty bread for a perfect make-ahead summer meal. Cooking time includes 1 hour cooling and 1 hour chilling time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Blend first 5 ingredients in a blender or food processor briefly, just until the sun-dried tomatoes are coarsely chopped.
  2. Add this dressing to the drained HOT pasta in a large bowl.
  3. Toss to coat well.
  4. Cool, stirring occasionally.
  5. Add remaining ingredients.
  6. Salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Cover and chill.

This was REALLY good! I added marinated artichoke hearts too...since I have an enormous jar from Costco to use up...and it really complimented the dish. This is such a nice change from regular salad on a hot Las Vegas evening! Hubby fully agrees that this a keeper! Thanks!

The sauce really makes this. I use it on practically every Mediterranean style pasta salad I make. It was a big hit with penne, chunks of salami and mozzarella, artichoke hearts, fresh tomatoes and basil. Thanks for sharing!
