Simple & Nourishing - Feta & Vegetable Pasta Salad

Feta & Vegetable Pasta Salad

This simple dish is adapted from a Kraft recipe. It makes a hearty dinner pasta salad and also works well as a side. We're enjoying this dish quite a bit right now as it makes good use of the tomatoes and cucumbers from our local farmer's market.


Organic whole wheat pasta

1 -2 tomatoes (local, organically grown), diced

1 - 2 cucumbers (local, organically grown), sliced

1/2 - 1 c diced red onion

Homemade Italian dressing (I used the recipe from Passionate Homemaking)

Feta cheese, crumbled

Cook pasta according to package directions. Dice tomatoes and red onion; peel and slice cucumbers. After the pasta is done, drain and rinse. Combine all ingredients and refrigerate for 1 hour.

(By the way, I am having to leave this comment using an old blogger account, because I can't figure out why blogger won't let me use a username/url setting).

I love this combo- it makes me drool!!! I usually make this without the pasta and tons of fresh herbs... it could easily be the main course for me- so deicious!
