Not Suddenly Salad Pasta Salad

Here’s the pasta salad I served at a previous cocktail party.  I created this back in the day.  The day in this instance means when we didn’t have much cash.  We ate a bunch of this box stuff called Suddenly Salad.  It got to be too much and too salty and too out-of-a-box so I decided to create my own.  This is what I’ve came up with after a few trials and errors and it’s been a family favorite every sense.

1 lb farfalle (bowtie) pasta, whole wheat if you can find it
1 small can of sliced black olives
1/2 a medium red onion-chopped
1 large tomato-chopped

4 oz crumbled feta cheese.  Sometimes I use the kind with sun dried tomato and basil

As a dressing I use Ken’s Steak House balsamic vinaigrette – just  to taste.  I usually use a 1/2 – 1 cup.
Sometimes I like to put in a couple dashes of italian seasoning or some fresh basil and/or oregano from the herb garden.

If you need to take something to a picnic or a party this is a great dish!
