Greek Pasta Salad

The Greek flavor craving continues!! I can not get enough of this new to me flavor combination!! I have eaten Greek food for years, I have cooked for years, but I have never thought that I could bring those flavors into my own kitchen! Sure, anyone can learn to make Greek recipes, I get it… but it just never occurred to me to just, do it myself. I know when you look at my photos for this recipe you’re gonna be thinking, “hey where are the kalamata olives?” Well the hubbyman isn’t a fan, so I opted for queen green! He was happy, I was happy…. we just happy!

Try this recipe for the next picnic, church social or just for your family! Lemme know what you think!
