If you have some cooked pasta leftover and wondering what to make, then this could be perfect recipe for you. The ingredients required to prepare the dressing will most likely be all available with you in your pantry. And as far as the vegetables as considered, you can just add what you have available with you. English cucumber, onions, bell peppers, cherry tomatoes and of course some olives and feta cheese is what you need to make this salad. If you don’t have cherry tomatoes, you can use regular tomatoes. In place of English cucumber, you can use whichever variety you have available with you.
This pasta is so fresh and since the dressing is not a creamy one, it feels quite light on the stomach too. Since it contains pasta, it has enough carbs too, so it can be a full meal all by itself. It doesn’t really need a side to go along! If you are looking for more options for salads, do check out here.
