Made this to take to the beach. Delish. I added cut up cucumbers from my garden, too! 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼
Oh my goodness I’m literally making this for a beach party next week!! Isn’t it the best? Great idea to add your garden cukes!
I want to record this in my recipes for tracking macros, what is 1 serving size?
1/2 cup! Sorry about that – enjoy!
I make a similar dressing for a Greek toss salad and it is delicious so I can’t wait to try this one! Thank you for sharing!
Oh good! It’s so versatile! Let me know what you think!
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!
Oh yes!! I hope you try it!! There are tons of gluten free noodle options. I also love making it with brown rice!
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.
I am such a sucker for feta too Marina!
