My kids both LOVE olives! (Yes, even the 1 yr old) so this salad is always year round hit in our house. My oldest son takes it for lunch at school. He would eat it every day if I let him.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Cups cooked Pasta or Quinoa
  • 1/2 Cup crumbled or diced Feta
  • 1/4 Cup chopped tomatoes
  • 1/8 Cup diced english cucumber
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1/4 Cup Sliced Olives (green or black), or more if you love olives like us
  • 1 Tbsp Greek Seasoning
  • 1/2 Tbsp Balsamic Vinegar (optional)
  1. Cook Pasta or Quinoa as per pkg instructions.  (any type of pasta will do, but I like Orzo or penne, completely different, I know!)
  2. In large bowl, combine all other ingredients and stir to blend flavours. I like to prepare this before cooking pasta to allow the flavours to combine. If you can make this the night before, it will be even more flavourful.
  3. Add cooked pasta, toss well and serve.

We eat this at least once a week!

Make it into a complete meal by adding cooked chicken to the mixture. This is fantastic served warm or cold.
