½ cucumber, peeled, finely sliced

½ cup black olives, pitted and halved if large

Dressing


¼ cup olive oil oil

3 tablespoons red wine vinegar

Ground black pepper to taste


Directions


Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water according to package directions. Drain, and run under cold water to stop the cooking process. Drain again. Transfer to a large bowl and toss with 1 tablespoon of olive oil.

Add cherry tomatoes, bell pepper, cucumber, olives, onion, and feta. Mix to combine.

In a small bowl combine all dressing ingredients and whisk together well, or put in jar with lid and shake well.

Pour over pasta salad and toss to combine.

Refrigerate at least two hours before serving.

Properly stored, pasta salad will last for 3 to 5 days in the refrigerator.
