Greek Pasta Salad

When I worked as an interior designer there was a little cafe down the road from our fabric and upholstery shop. We frequented there for lunch to pick up sandwiches and soups, but their pasta salad became my fave! My co-worker and I decided for what we were paying for a small cup everyday we could make some to last our small staff for a week. So we did.

I worked hard on the recipe until it was just right! It is super simple and mixes up our norm around the Jackson house. It's perfect for the spring time to take to Easter lunch or a backyard BBQ.

I will be sharing recipes weekly on this blog- both from the app and from the ones we try and add to our faves. But, I will be sharing even more often in our fb group. Want our Cooking Club updates? Make sure and join our JPF Family Fb Group and subscribe to our blog below.
