Greek Pasta Salad

Recipe by
Great Lakes Energy Cooperative  
  • 2 cups penne pasta
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 10 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 small red onion, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 cucumber, partially-peeled or peeled, sliced
  • 1/2 cup sliced black or Kalamata olives
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese

Fill large pot with lightly salted water and bring to rolling boil over high heat. Stir in the penne, and return to a boil. Cook pasta, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 11 minutes.  Rinse with cold water and drain well in a colander. Whisk together the vinegar, lemon juice, garlic, oregano, salt, pepper, and olive oil.  Set aside. Combine pasta, tomatoes, onion, green and red peppers, cucumber, olives, and feta cheese in a large bowl. Pour vinaigrette over the pasta and mix together. Cover and chill for 3 hours before serving. Serves 8.
