Delicious Greek Pasta Salad


My ideal recipe is one that is made with simple ingredients, quickly and effortlessly, and tastes delicious [of course]. Want to know a little secret? I’m not a great cook. Yep, cats outta the bag – I’m a dietitian with VERY basic culinary skills and sometimes just as little patience. I’m all about taking turns with the hubby when it comes to making dinner, adopting family favorite recipes, and learning from friends.  With this, my recipe blogs are meant to be a representation of simple, convenient, and tasty meals that virtually anyone can learn! Being a nutrition professional doesn’t guarantee my family extravagant daily dishes (sorry future children). At the end of the day, I’m just like any other average, working, hungry person trying to crush this adulting thing [cue deep breath here]. If you’re in this boat too, I hope I can be a source of realistic recipes that tickle your taste buds!

Greek Pasta Salad

Last summer two of my girl friends spent the day with me on my back porch: sun shining, full of giggles, and the deal was that I’d host if the girls brought munchies. One of the easiest, summer recipes I’ve learned is all thanks to good friends that love food as much as I do!

One of my friends [and creator of this dish] is a vegetarian, so for the sake of being good friends we always try to have at least one vegetarian meal or snack when we get together. This has selfishly opened me up to so much variety! Not only am I always able to adopt new ideas using [sometimes] unfamiliar foods, but I’m able to add recipes to my repertoire that are easy to change up in order to please different crowds. This pasta salad is a party pleaser for sure! Feel free to change up the veggies, add more protein with chicken, turkey, or pepperoni, and use leftovers in your weekly meal prep (huge convenience factor)!
