“This is a fabulous salad that is SURE to please all of your guests. It is easy to increase or decrease the size of the recipe to suit your needs. Dont use Extra Virgin Olive Oil for this salad. Use an olive oil suitable for salads. I really hope you enjoy my creation!!!”

  5. Pour the vinaigrette over the pasta mixture and mix to combine.
  6. Add oregano and green onions, toss, and then add extra salt and pepper to your tastes.
