    I love salads all year round but especially the ones that can be used as a main for summer meals. It might Sept but our 95+ heat spell continues so I cook lightly in the mornings and enjoy some great recipes for dinner. I made this as written right down the line (well, except for the cuke which I skipped) and really enjoyed the little flavor boost from the anchovy paste. I've been getting tiny tomatoes called sweet gems here of late, they are red and yellow and so sweet and juicy that I've been eating a hand full out of the fridge for a snack. They were delicious in this pasta salad. Served with coconut vanilla ice tea on some chopped romaine. Oh so good!

    Aussie Recipe Tag: I loved this recipe! Such flavor and fresh ingredients! I couldn't get enough of it - I think it will be a new addition to our Christmas dinner this year as well

    I really liked this salad; filling and refreshing. I scaled it back and used green pepper instead of cucumber and omitted the black olivies

    I would have like to use fresh herbs but it's too early in the season for me. I'll do it again later this summer with fresh herbs. I used dried herbs and it was great also. I used macaroni. I used red onion instead of green onions. And I used black olives, cause that's what I had on hands. The dressing is great. DH wanted more feta on his serving. It's perfect for lunch. Great flavors.
