Mediterranean Summer Pasta Salad – quick and easy salad with light creamy dressing.
Mediterranean Summer Pasta Salad is a type of salad that I make the most during hot days. It is quick and easy to prepare, as well as very satisfying. Cooked pasta is combined with chilled vegetables, feta cheese and creamy dressing. It can be made in advance and kept in refrigerator until you need it.
