Greek Tuna Pasta Salad

I've developed such a love for Greek salads - anytime I can get Kalamata olives in my belly - I'm on it! This pasta dish is a go-to in my house as it goes together so quick - just the time it takes to boil pasta! 
And now - it's even easier to pack for lunch with this delicious tuna that I topped it with. This light pasta dish is great served warm or cold - you're going to love it! 

What goes into your Mediterranean Pasta Salad?   

I love all things Greek Pasta Salad and I put in Kalamata olives, feta cheese crumbles, diced tomatoes, pepperoncinis and Greek salad dressing. I used this radiatore pasta - it's short and small but has lots of curly spots that grabs a hold of that Greek dressing! 

Now I'm topping my Greek Pasta Salad with StarKist Selects E.V.O.O.® Yellowfin Tuna! The StarKist Selects E.V.O.O.® Pouches come in three varieties: StarKist Selects E.V.O.O.® Yellowfin Tuna, StarKist Selects E.V.O.O.® Yellowfin Tuna with Sun Dried Tomato, and StarKist Selects E.V.O.O.® Wild Caught Pink Salmon. I wanted to go with the StarKist Selects E.V.O.O.® Yellowfin Tuna for this dish to absorb the dressing flavors! 

 How do you make Greek Pasta Salad? 

It's so simple to make Greek Pasta Salad! You just boil your pasta and then prep the other ingredients! Dice a tomato, dice some pepperoncincis, pull out some Kalamata olives and grab the feta - that's it! I put everything in little bowls so when my pasta is done I can quickly mix everything together. 

The StarKist Selects E.V.O.O.® Yellowfin Tuna is a great pairing for this because it doesn't require any heat or cooking - so you just open the pouch and top your pasta and you're done! The StarKist Selects E.V.O.O.® are packed in cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil and are also Wild Caught. 

I love having this Greek Tuna Pasta Salad while it's still warm. Feta doesn't really "melt" but it warms, and everything blends together really well. If you have leftovers - they're great for lunch the next day - but always pack extra dressing - the pasta will absorb it pretty quickly. I also take an extra StarKist Selects E.V.O.O.® Yellowfin Tuna pouch as well - at only 180 calories and 18 grams of protein - it's super healthy and a great source of Omega 3s! (and yum!) 


This Greek Tuna Pasta Salad is going to be a favorite of yours like it is mine. I probably eat some variation of this dish every week! It just goes together so quickly and then I have leftovers for lunch the next day! I hope you love it!
