This pasta salad was so easy to make, but amazingly tasty! The husband had so much of it that I had to stop him from eating. Or else the kids there will not be enough for the kids to enjoy. The kids enjoyed it as much as we did as well!
The dressing was so delicious! Just the right balance of sweet, salty, and tang. And the vegetables added layers of texture and some freshness to the salad. What I liked most is getting a little of that yummy feta cheese in each bite. This is one of those awesome make ahead recipe for a busy week or party. Oh, and it’s vegetarian friendly too!
