Whole-Grain Greek Pasta Salad

Whole-Grain Greek Pasta Salad

This favorite is my summer cookout go-to recipe for family cookouts. Everyone is pleased with this flavor-packed pasta salad. The dressing, especially, is so delicious that your family won’t miss the typical oil served alongside. We often change up the whole grain pasta shapes to add a different texture to the dish. Ingredients: 12 oz. whole grain pasta, cooked


½ cup cherry tomatoes, halved

½ cup diced red onion

½ cup chopped cucumber

½ cup diced red bell pepper

1 15-oz. can of chickpeas, drained (save aquafaba) and rinsed

8 pitted olives, diced Dressing Ingredients: ¼ cup red wine vinegar

¼ cup aquafaba

1 tablespoon lemon juice

¼ teaspoon onion powder

¼ teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon white miso
