    Can you say yummy in my tummy! We have a family party coming up and this is something that I would love to make. For myself, I would make vegetti noodles instead of pasta because of my gluten issues but this is perfect for summer!! Thank you for sharing!

    LOVE Greek pasta salad! Feta is the best. My favorite potluck dish to bring has always been some sort of fruit salad or grilled vegetable side dish.
