A BBQ side dish with a healthier spin
Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time10 mins
Total Time55 mins
Servings: 6 servings
- 1/2 pound shaped pasta
- 1 cup tzatziki sauce (see note for recipe link or use your favorite)
- 1 roma tomato
- 1/2 cucumber diced
- 1/4 cup kalamata olives sliced
- 1/2 cup feta cheese crumbles
- 2 Tablespoons red onion finely diced
Cook the pasta as per package directions in salted water until al dente (not too soft, still with some bite to it).
Cool the pasta in a container.
Make the tzatziki if not done already. Chill until ready to assemble.
Chop all of your mix-ins (tomatoes, cucumber, olives, onion). These can be added to the pasta container or kept separate.
When ready to serve, mix the pasta, mix-ins, and tzatziki sauce together. Adjust seasoning and ratio as desired. Serve chilled.
This pasta salad can easily be made in advance. It is best to keep the sauce separate from the pasta until ready to serve as the pasta will absorb a lot of the moisture in the sauce.
Use as much or little of each mix in as preferred, and use more or less tzatziki to get your desired creamy consistency.
