Ingredients -- ( for anybody who's wondering, this is the pasta salad I meant to make last time when I had a major supermarket fail and bought the wrong ingredients )
Start pot of water boiling (if you're doing pasta salad) - once water boils cook pasta al dente
Clean off your onion
Dice - then into a big mixing bowl
Dice - bowl !
Cut the tops off, and pull out the seeds
Strips...diced - bowl !
3/4 of your cucumber is for the salad and 1/4 for your tzatziki-inspired dressing
Diced and into bowl
1/4 diced into food processor
Crumble feta into bowl
Olives into rings... And bowl !
Cut up fresh dill
And into bowl !
Add parsley, garlic salt, lemon pepper and olive oil - mix ! (Feel free to stop here for the lightest of your three salad options ! )
Add fresh dill to food processor
Preheat olive oil in pan
Drain pasta once it's ready and cool with cool water ( so it stops cooking and so it won't cook your veggies ) - leave it to cool on the side while you make your tzatziki
And fresh dill
Add parsley, garlic salt, and lemon pepper to food processor
Add garlic and olive oil to food processor
And sour cream
Blend until smooth - the cucumber will make it kind of watery (you might have to add more yogurt)
If you don't have a food processor, follow the same process sans cucumber to make a yogurt-dill sauce
Mix into veggies - feel free to stop at this step (option#2) for a yogurt-dill veggie salad with no pasta
Mix in pasta and chill for a colorful, refreshing pasta salad perfect for summer family gatherings !
