Mediterranean Pasta Salad
Summer's not over yet! This pasta salad recipe is wonderful warm or room temp. I like to double up on the veggies. It's wonderful with artichokes, tomatoes, garbanzo beans, and Parmesan cheese. Mediterranean Pasta Salad Ingredients Kosher salt 1 pound tricolor pasta, such as bow tie or fusilli 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar 2 to 3 teaspoons dijon mustard Freshly ground pepper 2/3 to 3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil 1/3 cup diced sun-dried tomatoes 1/4 cup fresh basil, julienned 1/4 cup diced onion 2 large pickled pepperoncini peppers, diced 3 tablespoons halved black olives 2 teaspoons chopped fresh oregano 1 1/2 ounces feta cheese, crumbled 1 1/2 tablespoons grated romano cheese Directions Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook until al dente; drain, then rinse with cold water to cool. Meanwhile, make the vinaigrette: Whisk the vinegar, mustard, 1 teaspoon salt, and pepper to taste in a small bowl. Gradually whisk in enough of the oil to make a smooth dressing; season with salt and pepper. Combine the sun-dried tomatoes, basil, onion, pepperoncini, olives and oregano in a bowl. Add the cooked pasta, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1 teaspoon pepper. Add the vinaigrette and both cheeses and toss. Chill until ready to serve.

I love Mediterranean recipes! They're always so colorful and healthy. I'll be trying this one out this weekend for sure.
the recipe is pretty simple but the dish itself looks like quite a fancy meal and I love the variety of the colours
Love the colors in this, almost too pretty to eat! Seems like such a fun way to get some healthy food into your diet.
