  • 1 English cucumber partially peeled and cut into half moons
  • 1 medium red onion diced (or a small whole red onion)

Instructions

  • Cook your noodles according to package instructions, adding salt to the boiling water before adding the dry noodles.  Once the noodles are finished, rinse them in cold water to stop the cooking process.
  • While the water is coming to a boil and the noodles are cooking, chop the cucumber, red onions, cherry tomatoes, and red peppers.
  • Whisk together the ingredients for the dressing. (Please note that you may want to make a full batch of my greek dressing if you like your pasta salad extra saucy or you wish to leave some on the side for your guests to add. Find the full version measurements here.)
  • When the noodle are done and the vegetables are chopped, toss all of the ingredients together in a large bowl.  Add the salad dressing and toss to combine. 
  • Serve immediately or refrigerate.  Best within one day of making, can be eaten within three days of being made.
