We had some family friends over last night for dinner and so I decided to make a Greek themed dinner which included this pasta salad, I’ll post the gyros later this week. The recipe comes from “My Recipes” and it was pretty good also it made a huge bowl of salad which was good since there was 12 of us last night.
12 ounces pasta
1 (15 oz) can white beans, drained and rinsed
4 cups baby spinach
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1 cucumber, peeled, halved lengthwise, seeded and sliced
4 scallions, finely chopped
1/2 cup pitted Kalamata olives, chopped
1/2 teaspoon dried dill weed
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup lemon juice
4 ounces crumbled Feta
1 Cook pasta according to package directions.
2 Combine beans, spinach, tomatoes, scallions, olives, herbs, oil and lemon juice in large bowl. Add drained pasta to bowl and toss to combine. Let stand for 10 minutes to cool slightly.
3 Stir in Feta, season with salt and pepper.
