Main Course Salads: Mediterranean Pasta Salad

Strictly speaking, this is not a salad per se. This would be more accurately termed as cold pasta since there is more pasta than veggies.

Whether salad or cold pasta, I find myself overeating on this all the time. I can’t help it. I love pasta salads. And better yet, I love Mediterranean-style pasta salads with bits of olives and feta cheese!

There are tons of salads by the same name, but here’s my version of it.

Pasta, cherry tomatoes, olives, feta, roasted bell peppers, lots of parsley and drizzle your favourite vinaigrette. Mine happens to be the very same lemon-olive oil vinaigrette used in Salad Nicoise.

If you need protein, throw in bits of salami or prosciutto and fresh basil instead of parsley. For a vegetarian version, I would recommend throwing in cooked or canned chickpeas.

I am all set for a potluck party!

Except that there was no party and I ate half of the huge plate by myself.

Now my love handles/muffin tops are getting out of control.
