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

¼ teaspoon dried basil

1 teaspoon dried oregano

1 teaspoon white miso

1.    In a large bowl, toss together cooked whole grain pasta, cherry tomatoes, red onion, cucumber, red bell pepper, chickpeas, and olives.

2.    In a small bowl, add all of the dressing ingredients. Whisk ingredients together until white miso is com-pletely dissolved.

3.    Pour dressing mixture over pasta salad.

4.    Serve cold.
