Sandy's Greek Pasta Salad

Rated as 4.3 out of 5 Stars

"I invented this fresh and easy recipe when I found myself continually invited to summer potlucks, and I needed a no-fuss dish to make. You can even make this the day before. A quick, easy, and healthy pasta salad that is great for potlucks and always a crowd-pleaser."

Great recipe! I found it kind of dry so I doubled the dressing recipe and it was just right!
