Todays recipe came from me wishing to go to Greece and wanting to use up what I had in my refrigerator.
I use the basic Greek salad dressing recipe then add my ingredients to make this a very easy side or a light dinner.
2-3 cloves of garlic minced then crushed
5 Tablespoon of red wine vinegar
1/2 Cup olive oil
1/2 Teaspoon of sugar
2 Tablespoon of lemon
1 1/2 Teaspoons of Dijon mustard
1/2 Teaspoon of basil leaves
1/4 Teaspoon of oregano leaves
Salt and Pepper to taste
Mix the above ingredients in a container, store in refrigerator.
Now that your dressing is chilling in the refrigerator assemble your salad.
4-5 Cups of Bow Tie pasta cooked according to the box directions
1 can of Chickpeas ( rinsed and drained)
4-5 Green Onion diced
1-2 Tomatoes cut in bite sized pieces
1 Cup of Kalamata olives diced (or in a pinch black olives work)
1 Cup of crumbled Feta Cheese
1 Cup of baby Spinach
Mix the above ingredients in bowl, add the dressing. This can be eaten immediately or saved for later. I like it better after it has had time to sit refrigerated for a few hours.
