The perfect light pasta salad bursting with flavors!  Delicious for any cookouts or grill nights!



1416 ounce bag of pasta (any short shape will do)

4 cups frozen green peas, thawed

4 ounces feta cheese, crumbled

1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley

1/4 cup fresh chopped mint

3 T. fresh chopped dill

Zest of 12 lemons

Vinaigrette Ingredients: (can make ahead!)

1/2 cup olive oil

1/2 cup white wine vinegar

1/2 a lemon, juiced

1 large clove garlic, minced

1 t. Dijon mustard

1 t. sugar

1 t. kosher salt

1/4 t. black pepper


Cook pasta according to package instructions, drain, rinse with cold water and set aside.

Whisk all vinaigrette ingredients together, or put in a jelly jar and shake until thoroughly combined.  You can make this a few days ahead and keep in fridge.

Combine pasta, peas, feta, and fresh chopped herbs in a large bowl.

Add about half of vinaigrette and toss gently.  Taste and add more vinaigrette as desired.  I use about 3/4 of the vinaigrette and save the rest for another salad!  Top with lemon zest.

Serve and enjoy!!
