Judy's Pasta Salad

Many many years ago, I got this recipe from a neighbour, my good friend Judy. She has moved far away, but we still love this pasta salad, it has a Greek twist to it, delicious! I highly recommend it!

Judy’s Pasta Salad

-2 cups pasta (your choice of kind), cook 8 minutes, or to package directions
-add 1 tbsp. olive oil to cooked, drained pasta, mix well
-in a small bowl combine 1/3 cup, diced sweet red pepper, 1/4 cup chopped green onion, 1/4 cup slivered black olives
-add this to pasta

3 tbsp. white wine vinegar
1/2 cup feta cheese
2 tbsp. minced fresh parsley
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. oregano
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/3 cup olive oil
Combine everything in a blender and blend well.
Add to pasta mixture. Dressing is good when made the day before as well. Just before serving, add to salad: 1 cup cherry tomatoes - cut in half, (any tomatoes will do), and 1/2 cup chopped cucumber. Keep chilled until ready to serve.

I have been known to double the salad dressing to give the salad more flavour!
