This zesty Mediterranean Pasta Salad recipe combines vegetables and pasta in a delightful dressing.

Refreshing and filling, this change-of-pace salad topped with feta cheese is perfect as a side dish. It’s easy to make and is always popular at a potluck.

Why homemade rather than store-bought?

We absolutely love pasta salad and all of its flavor. While store-bought may taste great, most brands don’t use real food ingredients. Instead, they use refined white or wheat pasta, vegetable oils and artificial ingredients. This recipe takes the guesswork out of knowing if your pasta salad is a healthy addition to your meal or nothing more than a real-food imposter. 

Make it a meal

Add a little chicken and you can serve it as your main dish!

Prep ahead

So we can toss our pasta salad together in 10 minutes flat. We often chop our veggies and cook our protein (such as chicken) on our meal prep day or the day before.

Pre-chopping, cutting or cooking ingredients really helps to reduce stress and simplify dinner on busy weeknights.  We know, we know, we’re always talking about meal prep, but it truly is the holy grail to healthy eating!
