Pasta salads have been a favorite of mine since I was a kid, but I was never fond of the heavy mayonnaise dressings they were covered in. Since they were always served at barbecues and parties I learned to avoid them since I felt like they weren’t great at room temperature.

This delicious Easy Greek Pasta Salad is made with a quick homemade vinaigrette and tastes fresh with the addition of fresh dill, tomatoes and cucumbers.

There is actually a story about why I paired this Easy Greek Pasta Salad with the Pure Leaf® Unsweetened Black Iced Tea. As a kid anytime we were feeling under the weather or it was a cold day our mom would make us a cup of Lipton® Black Tea for breakfast. We would drink the tea paired with pita bread, feta cheese and black Greek olives. To this day if I feel sick, I immediately prepare the same breakfast.

With the addition of the feta and olives, the salad is filling without the need for any additional proteins. If you would like to add some to the dish you can always add chicken or shrimp, just marinate for 30 minutes in a few tablespoons of the dressing before grilling or sautéing on a medium high heat until just cooked through. Easy Greek Pasta Salad with a homemade vinaigrette, pasta, feta, and olives is the perfect, easy lunch meal you can enjoy at room temperature.
