This Greek Pasta Salad recipe will be the hit of your summer cookouts this year. It's delicious, light and makes the perfect BBQ side dish!

Summer cookout season is now upon us and it’s not a cookout without pasta salad. I have a few different pasta salad varieties that I make, but every now and then I make Greek Pasta Salad. I know it’s not for everyone, but if you like Greek salads, you will love ths Greek Pasta Salad! It’s really easy to make and it’s SO good!

The thing about pasta salads is that they are wicked easy to make so you can whip up a bowl of it in almost no time.   The longest part is waiting for the pasta to cool off….but if you use my ice trick (see below), it helps get your pasta salad cooler much faster.

Pasta salad is a staple in our house during the summer and this Greek Pasta Salad is a nice change from the regular pasta salad I usually make for cookouts.  And to be clear, we cookout A LOT in the summer because we don’t have much summer here in these parts (so we eat lots of pasta salad).
