  • 3 cups uncooked pasta
  • 1 red pepper chopped
  • 1 green pepper chopped
  • 1 small red onion chopped
  • 1/2 cup Kalamata olives
  • 3 mini cucumbers (or 3/4 English cucumber) chopped
  • 1 cup little tomatoes (grape, cherry, etc.) halved
  • 5 ounces crumbled feta
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh parsley chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon (packed) brown sugar


  1. Boil a large, salted pot of water and cook pasta al dente according to package directions. Once it's cooked, drain it and run it under cool water. Let it drain thoroughly.

  2. Meanwhile, while the pasta is cooking, get all your other ingredients ready. Add the dressing ingredients to a jar and shake vigorously. You may need to add more oil or vinegar depending on your tastes.

  3. Assemble the pasta salad in a large bowl. Toss with the dressing and season with salt & pepper as needed (I added a fair bit of salt because there's a lot of pasta). Either serve  the pasta salad right away or refrigerate until the flavors meld a bit.
