Greek Pasta Salad

Greek.  Pasta.  Salad. 

Need I say more? 


Allison first introduced me to this when she brought it over for New Years.  It just randomly popped into my head recently, so I asked her for the recipe.  She told me there was no real recipe for it; she made it up.  It’s just Orzo pasta with other Greek ingredients. 

Sounds easy enough, right? 

Well, it was!  Josh and I whipped this up in a manner of 15 minutes.  It’s just so delicious, I had to share the “recipe” with you.

  • Cook Orzo pasta al dente (I used a box and a half to make a large serving)greek
  • While the pasta is cooking, chop up all the veggies.
  • 1 diced English cucumber
  • halved grape tomatoes
  • 1 can of sliced black olives
  • 1/2  red onion diced
  • Greek dressing of your choice. 

I used my favorite dressing – Farmer Boy Restaurant Greek Dressing.




Lastly, don’t forget to top with crumbled feta. 

Everything is betta with feta!





  1. this looks awesome! and my boys might eat it if i leave out the onion!! :)

  2. I am going to have to make that! It looks so good.

  3. I'm glad you enjoyed it, thanks for the shout-out! We do the same thing for our Greek inspired pizza.. yum!

  4. It was sooo yummy!!! Great recipe Ally!

  5. One of my favorites! Unfortunately, not a single one of my boys will touch it. I guess that just means more for me. Looking foward to seeing you guys at the Hoffmann reunion!

  6. Yum. I might have to make this sometime this week!

  7. Yummy, I like the idea of the orzo! I make an Italian pasta salad that has similar ingredients so next time I have a hankering for pasta salad I'll 'go Greek'!
