A delicious and easy spinach and pasta salad for you to make at your gatherings. Tossed with a quick homemade garlicky dressing, it’s a summer essential. This is the ideal side dish for the hot summer months, making it perfect for picnics, barbecues or your summer gatherings and entertaining. The right combination of easy store-bought and simple ingredients with my delicious homemade dressing makes this entire combination simply delicious.
This easy salad will be your go-to and the first bowl to get eaten, trust me! Remove the feta cheese for a vegan-friendly meal. If you love the combination of the ingredients but want a healthier alternative to pasta, check out my pearl couscous and chickpea salad.
Cook the pasta according to package directions, in salted water. Shake excess water and toss with a little oil to prevent the pasta from sticking. Set aside.
Chop and prepare the salad ingredients.
To make the dressing, combine all dressing ingredients (I like to use a jar for this – always shake the jar before pouring). Season with salt.
Toss all ingredients together except for the feta. Add the dressing, taste and adjust the seasoning. Gently mix in the feta cheese.
