Easy Greek Pasta Salad

My mother-in-law gave me this great recipe, and I have made it many times. I've taken it to church picnics and potlucks, and someone always asks for the recipe. —Laura Freeman, Ruffin, North Carolina

    LOVED THIS! Doubled everything (except the dressing) and ate it for lunch and dinner for a couple of days! Definitely will be making this again and again!

    My husband and I really liked this pasta salad and he's not one for pasta, and I'm usually not one for olives, but it all tasted great together. I also loved how easy it was to throw together. I ended up adding more chicken (about 1 cup total) and using reduced fat feta and reduced fat dressing and it was still very delicious!!!

    I used grilled chicken and a little bit more peppers and olives than was called for.

    I loved this recipe as it was easy to make and delicious! I received rave reviews at Easter dinner as it was a nice compliment to the honey-glazed ham! I did omit the chicken, however. I was also able to use the leftover ingredients to make myself a nice salad using the rest of the creamy ceaser dressing! Great stuff!
