Instruction
 

     

    • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook it until al dente. Strain the pasta and transfer it to a large bowl to cool slightly.
    • While the pasta cools, make the dressing. Make the dressing: In a small bowl, whisk together all of the dressing ingredients, except for the olive oil. While whisking, stream in the olive oil.  Season the dressing with salt and pepper, to taste.
    • Add the red onions, tomatoes, cucumbers, olives, green peppers and feta cheese to the bowl with the pasta.
    • Pour the dressing over the pasta, tossing to combine, then cover the salad with plastic wrap and refrigerate it for at least 3 hours and up to overnight. When ready to serve, toss the pasta salad again and enjoy cold or at room temperature.
