Isn't it technically supposed to be winter?

Spring hasn't even hit and it's supposed to be 91 degrees today! Yuck.

With the warmer temps coming, I was in the mood for a light, cool snack.

Cue - the best pasta salad EVER!

Greek Pasta Salad

12 oz rotini pasta
1/3 cup olive oil
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 1/2 tsp dried basil leaves
1 1/2 tsp dried oregano
15 halved cherry tomatoes
3/4 cup crumbled Feta cheese
1/2 cup chopped green onion
1 (4 ounce) can chopped black olives

Really the possibilities are endless.  You can add broccoli, cucumbers, mushrooms, asparagus etc.

1.  Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil.  Add rotini pasta and cook for 8-10 minutes or until al dente; Drain. 

2.  Add olive oil, red wine vinegar, herbs, onions, olives and tomatoes to large bowl.

3.  Stir it up!

4.  Add feta, mix and enjoy!

This recipe makes a lot so it's great for midweek snacks/lunches. 

What are your favorite hot weather snacks??
