"Pasta salad season is upon us, and this is a fresh, vibrant, and unexpected way to switch it up. This Greek-inspired pasta salad takes the classic chopped Greek salad – chock full of crisp cucumbers, summer tomatoes, fresh bell peppers, salty olives, lots of herbs, and creamy feta – and adds cooked and cooled pasta to the mix. It can be a light lunch or dinner, a side dish, an appetizer – in other words, everything you want in a pasta salad."

Lots of salt
