Greek Pasta Salad

HELLO! The sun is STILL shining here in Northern Ireland, which is pretty much unheard of. So, today I've got a lovely summery and healthy recipe to share with you guys. This recipe is so easy to make and is perfect for summer picnics, work lunches or just as a healthy snack. I just threw this together for my lunch today and thought it was really tasty so just had to share because lunches can get pretty boring (am I right?!). Can you really go wrong with these ingredients?


GREEK PASTA SALAD

INGREDIENTS (makes enough for one hungry person)

a handful of dried pasta, I used penne
a handful of black olives, halved
a couple of plum tomatoes, halved
1/4 of a cucumber, cut into small chunks
about 50g of feta, crumbled
1/4 of a red onion, finely diced
3tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
1/2 juice of a lemon.

METHOD

1. Boil the pasta according to packet instructions.
2. Chop all your veg and mix the lemon juice, olive oil and a little salt and pepper together.
3. When the pasta is done, mix everything together. Save a little feta to top the dish.
4. You can eat it now or leave it to cool and have it cold, either way it's delicious.

And there you have it a quick and easy lunch recipe. If you try this I would love to know what you think! Anyway, i'm off to watch more Riverdale now (i'm completely obsessed!). Hope you have a lovely day! Thanks so much for reading,
