Have a look at how top quality these olives are!

I picked up beautiful artichokes and saffron Kalamata olives from Amanida on the farmers market the opposite day and determined to make a easy pasta salad that might showcase them. I used beautiful rainbow pasta for this pasta salad, however after all you can use common benne or bow tie pasta as effectively!

The measurements listed here are actually tips. Wish to use a complete freaking cup of feta cheese? Zero judgement right here! Wish to make an Olive palooza? Go nuts! Have oregano as a substitute of basil? Scrumptious! Wish to make it heartier? Add my Excellent Grilled Rooster.
