ANOTHER PASTA SALAD
This pasta salad has been a favorite of mine for years.
GREEK ROTINI SALAD
6 cups (uncooked) rotini
1 cup olive oil
4 Tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
½ tsp oregano
1 oz (26 gr) garlic powder (2 Tbsp + 1 tsp) (according to taste)
2 cups pepper strips (red, green and yellow)
36 black or green olives, pitted
3 cups feta cheese, crumbled
16 radishes, thinly sliced
½ cup green onions, sliced
8 Tbsp parsley, chopped
Cook rotini and rinse in cold water to cool quickly. Do NOT overcook!
Combine olive oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper, oregano and garlic powder in a small bowl and whisk to blend. Chill.
In a large serving bowl combine rotini, peppers, olives, feta cheese, radishes, green onions and parsley. Pour dressing over salad and toss gently to coat.
This makes enough to feed quite a few, so when I want to make a smaller batch I use 4 cups of rotini and HALF of all the other ingredients.
