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?
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!)
