Greek Macaroni Salad

I've found that I can't go wrong taking this colorful bean and pasta salad to a potluck, patio party or picnic. It is easy to put together ahead of time...and the flavors blend as the salad chills. -Cheryl Maczko Arthurdale, West Virginia

    This salad is easy and full of flavor. I have taken it to potlucks and always get asked for the recipe. It is better the longer it sits. My family loves it!

    Very flavorful and delicious. Great replacement for salad with mayo dressing.

    Just made this salad, it's very good. However, I reduced salt to 1/2 teaspoon because feta is very salty and it was just right. I also reduced the olive oil to less than 1/4 cup and it didn't affect the end result.
