In the summer when all the kids are home, I always have a pasta salad made in the fridge. It stretches well, takes no time to put together, is incredibly versatile and feeds a crowd which I always have. This Greek Salad version is the kids favorite. I serve alongside burgs and dogs or add grilled shrimp or chicken to make it the main. Either way it’s super delish! Loaded with olives, feta, tomato, cucumber, red onion, red pepper, lemon juice and lots of oregano, it is so packed with flavor! -@dianemorrisey
