Greek Pasta Salad

Alexis is a good kid. She's such a good kid that when we're standing at the grocery store and I say "pasta salad," she chimes in with "GREEK!"

She might just be in it for the olives, but that's okay. Greek Pasta Salad is always a good idea.

It would be an even better idea with cherry tomatoes in it, but the "good kid" managed to go through two entire containers of cherry tomatoes in one day because she is a beast. She's a beast who doesn't mention that she ate all of the tomatoes, at that.

ANYWAY.

Greek Pasta Salad. 

It's a solid choice in life.

Greek Pasta Salad

1 pound bowtie pasta, cooked and drained (drizzle some olive oil on them after you drain them to prevent stickiness and stuff)
1 cucumber, diced
1/2 red onion, diced
2 or 3 cans small black olives or kalamata olives (normal people might be able to get by with 1 can, but my children are olive-eating monsters)
1 cup feta cheese
2 cups grilled chicken strips (I used Morningstar stuff)
2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
4 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon finely chopped dill
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1. These are definitely going to be the most involved directions ever. Are you ready? Okay ... make sure all of your ingredients are room temperature or cooled and then throw them in a bowl together. Mix things up.

2. Annnnd ... done.
