Mediterranean Pasta Salad

Here we are...Day 5 of Salad Week is here already! Today I made Mediterranean Pasta Salad using fresh garden cucumbers, tomatoes and crumbled feta cheese. A simple, flavorful salad you can make in 30 minutes that goes well with just about anything else you decide to serve.

  1. Carrie,
    I love a good pasta salad (and Barilla bow ties!) so I am torn between today's salad and Wednesday's Greek farro. Just tell me when and where for the taste test, and I'll give you a proper answer on which is my favorite ;) !
