Ingredients:

For the Dressing:

  • ¼ cup Lifestyle Food Olive Oil
  • ¼ cup red wine vinegar
  • ½ cup fresh Italian parsley
  • ¼ cup fresh coriander
  • ¼ cup fresh basil
  • 1-2 tbsp honey (adjust to taste)
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Method:

  1. Begin by cooking the Gluten Free Fusilli Pasta according to the instructions on the packet. While the pasta is cooking, prepare the remaining ingredients: dice the cherry tomatoes, cucumber, and drain the green olives.
  2. Once the pasta is cooked to al dente perfection, drain it and transfer it to a large mixing bowl. Drizzle with a splash of Lifestyle Food Olive Oil and toss gently to coat the pasta and prevent sticking.
  3. In a blender or food processor, combine the olive oil, red wine vinegar, Italian parsley, coriander, fresh basil, honey, Dijon mustard, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Blend until smooth and well combined.
  4. Pour the freshly prepared dressing over the cooled pasta in the mixing bowl. Toss gently to ensure that the pasta is evenly coated with the dressing.
  5. Next, add in the diced cherry tomatoes, cucumber, green olives, and cubed vegan feta cheese to the dressed pasta. Gently fold the ingredients together to distribute them evenly throughout the salad.
  6. To serve, garnish the Greek Pasta Salad with fresh basil leaves for a pop of colour and an extra burst of flavour. For an added touch, serve the salad with extra dressing on the side, allowing your guests to customise their portions according to their taste preferences.
