Kittencal's Creamy Greek-Style Pasta Salad

"If you are a lover of Greek salad and Greek food then you are certain to enjoy this --- once you make this a few times you will most likely need to play around with the dressing ingredient to suit taste, I have listed 1/3 cup mayonnaise to be added to the dressing you may need to adjust the mayonnaise amount to desired creaminess after the salad is mixed --- plan ahead this salad needs to chill for at least 4 hours before serving"

    Fantastic! Tried a greek pasta salad at my local deli and was determined to come home and make my own. This one is even better than what I tried! I went heavy on the garlic, mayo and pepper. Also used a penne pasta and roasted red bell pepper. Thank You!!!!

    This was okay, but it just didn't wow me.

    Really good! I veganized it by omitting the feta and substituting vegenaise for the mayo - my non-vegan husband sprinkled feta on his at the end. We ended up having to add more mayo the next day because it really dried out but that might be because I used quinoa pasta.

    Susan u r rite!!!! This was execellent!! Just got a Vitamix unit last week, used it to combine the dressing ingredients. Used only 2 tbsps of mayo thined with 3tbsps of pasta water. Also went back and made dressing again to marinate chicken breasts for me and the girls and salmon for my husband. Sent a "taste test" bowl to my mother she came over with her own bowl!! ( Kittencal I also make ur shortbreads, ur my best friend in my head)!

    Oh my goodness! This was just the best recipe ever. I haven't been able to stop eating it. Someone dial 911!! The only things I did differently was to omit the olives, since I don't like them. Also I used a yellow pepper in place of the green, as green peppers don't like me. I used 1/2 cup of mayonnaise in the beginning with all the spices. I served mine with toasted and buttered ciabatta bread. Heaven! My husband thought it was a winner too. Try it, you'll like it!
