"I invented this fresh and easy recipe when I found myself continually invited to summer potlucks, and I needed a no-fuss dish to make. You can even make this the day before. A quick, easy, and healthy pasta salad that is great for potlucks and always a crowd-pleaser."

While I liked that this wasn't dripping in dressing, it did seem a tad dry after it sat; I found myself savoring the tomato bites for a burst of juiciness. I chose to leave out the olives per personal preference and I used dried basil in lieu of fresh. This was a nice change of pace from the typical Italian dressing or mayo based pasta salad, for sure. THANKS for the recipe, QUIKSANDY!

Excellent! We made our own version without olives or feta because I hate olives and we didn't have any feta. It was really good!!! Will definitely keep this in the rotation.

A tasty pasta salad that has no mayonnaise and little oil with all the ingredients this salad has going on. I did make without the olives, due to personal taste preferences. We found the salad to be better on the second day as the flavors had time to marry. I added the feta cheese right before serving, so it would stay in nice crumbles. Thanks QUIKSANDY for sharing your recipe. This will make a nice summer salad.
