Greek “Pasta” Salad- Whole30, Paleo
Key Words: pasta salad, Greek, Whole30, paleo, simple, quick, summer
One of my favorite summer time side dishes is pasta salad. Since cutting out pasta that is something I have really missed. I have discovered Palmini noodles which are noodles made from hearts of palm and I am addicted!
They can be easily made into any noodle dish you like, but this pasta salad is one of my favorites. It is quick and simple with all fresh ingredients. You can bring this to any summer BBQ and it will be a hit. It can be a side dish or add you can add some chicken to make it a full meal. If you are not on a Whole30 and feta works for you, throw that in there too!
You can prep this ahead of time and leave the dressing on the side to eat as a lunch multiple days in a row. Pour dressing over when you are ready to enjoy!
