Adding pasta turns a typical Greek salad into a lively main dish. Any short pasta shape will work if you don’t have shells on hand.



  • 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.
