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.
