Rated 4 out of 5 by TSSpiceGirl from Super tasty!! But waaaay too much oil Delicious flavor! However, you can use half, or even 1/4 of the oil/vinegar combo. It's swimming in oil. I added sliced black olives instead of the Kalamata. Also, if the flavor of the feta is too strong for you, try cubed fresh mozzarella. Perfect for spring/summer, especially good if you're spending a while at soccer practices and want a cold packed lunch with a little variety.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tsmomboss from Great recipe to take to a party! Made this to take this friends house for a party! Used Colby Jack cheese instead of Feta. Love how we can adjust the cheeses, veggies, and proteins to what our family enjoys! I think I'm making this as a hot dish and adding steamed green beans instead of cucumbers with some chicken! Yum!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mariak from Very tasty This is a very tasty pasta salad. My only suggestion would be much less oil and vinegar....at the bottom of the bowl, when the salad was gone, there was almost a full cup of oil left.
