Light Greek Pasta Salad

The blend of flavors in this Light Greek Pasta Salad is so fresh and light. The tangy lemon and sweet honey in the dressing, the fresh mint and bitter olives, and the added crunch of the cucumbers and red onions combines to make every bite a delight! Echo

2 medium cucumbers, seeded and chopped

1½ cups grape tomatoes, cut in half

¾ cup pitted Greek Kalamata olives, cut in half

½ red onion, sliced

¼ cup fresh mint leaves, chopped

½ cup feta cheese, crumbled


½ cup lemon juice

2 Tbsp Dijon mustard

2 Tbsp olive oil

2 Tbsp honey

1 tsp lemon peel, grated


Cook pasta according to package directions.

Drain pasta and rinse well with cold water.
