Ingredients

Salad

  • 12 ounces mini penne pasta
  • 14 ounces artichoke hearts, chopped 1 can
  • 1/2 large bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 3/4 cup kalamata olives, chopped
  • 6 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1/3 cup sun-dried tomatoes, chopped

Vinaigrette

  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 2 cloves garlic, smashed/cracked
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper, fresh ground

Instructions

Vinaigrette

  • Combine olive oil, red wine vinegar, lemon juice, garlic cloves, dried oregano, salt, and pepper in a jar with a tight-fitting lid and shake vigorously to combine.

Pasta Salad

  • Cook the pasta according to the package instructions. Drain, rinse in cold water. This stops the cooking process and also keeps the pasta from becoming gummy and clumping together.
  • Toss the cooled pasta with 2 teaspoons of sun-dried tomato oil (from the jar of sun-dried tomatoes).
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the pasta, artichoke hearts, green bell pepper, red onion, kalamata olives, sun-dried tomatoes, and feta cheese.
  • If serving immediately use all of the vinaigrette. If making ahead pour 2/3 – 3/4 of the vinaigrette over and toss to coat evenly.
