Greek Pasta Salad


Using pasta in place of the usual lettuce turns Greek salad into a substantial and lively main dish. Feel free to try other types of short pasta instead of the ones suggested here.

  • 6Servings


  • 10 oz. medium shell pasta
  • 2 large ripe but firm tomatoes, diced (2 1/2 cups)
  • 1 medium green bell pepper, cut into short, narrow strips (1 cup)
  • 1/2 medium red onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 oz. feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1/3 cup Greek black olives, pitted if desired
  • 1/3 cup low-fat vinaigrette, or to taste
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh dill


1. Bring large pot of water to a boil. Add 1 tablespoon salt and pasta, stirring to prevent sticking. Cook pasta until just tender. Drain; rinse under cold running water and drain well.

2. Transfer pasta to large bowl. Add remaining ingredients and toss gently until well combined. Serve at room temperature.
