Easy Greek Pasta Salad

Easy Greek Pasta Salad
Is it Summer yet?

Perhaps it’s the rainy weather here, but I’m ready for summer to begin. It’s the time of the year when watermelon constitutes as a meal, evenings are spent shucking corn on the porch, and sprinkles top every ice cream imaginable. I even ran to the store today to get fresh berries. I’m thinking strawberry cheese cake. Any suggestions on what I should make?

To count down the final days of spring, I’m sharing a few of my Mediterranean-inspired salads. First up on the list is one of my favorites:

Easy Greek Pasta Salad


1/2 package of whole wheat or gluten free pasta of your choice (roughly 3 ½ servings)
1 15 oz. can of garbanzo beans (chickpeas)
½ green bell pepper seeded and diced
2 tomatoes on the vine seeded and diced
1/4 cup chopped red onion
1/4 cup pitted and chopped Kalamata olives
1/4 cup chopped parsley
1 lemon
1 small garlic clove minced
2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil**
1 tbsp. raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar
Sea salt and pepper


  1. Boil pasta according to directions. Meanwhile, chop all the veggies and parsley, then mix it in a large bowl. Drain and rinse the chickpeas and add to the bowl.
  2. Toss the salad with the minced garlic, juice of one lemon, extra virgin olive oil, and apple cider vinegar. Add sea salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Rinse and drain the pasta with cold water. Add the pasta to the bowl and mix everything together.


*This is a great make-ahead pasta salad. I usually make a big batch up and divide the salad into wide mouth mason jars. It keeps the portions in check and makes the salad portable.
** You can double the EVOO and apple cider vinegar, add more lemon juice and pinch of salt to make the dressing even better. My version is a little lighter to reduce fat and calories.
