  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the penne, and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 11 minutes. Rinse with cold water and drain well in a colander set in the sink.
  2. Whisk together the vinegar, lemon juice, garlic, oregano, salt, pepper, and olive oil. Set aside. Combine pasta, tomatoes, onion, green and red peppers, cucumber, olives, and feta cheese in a large bowl. Pour vinaigrette over the pasta and mix together. Cover and chill for 3 hours before serving.

I thought this was the best greek pasta salad I have tried so far. There was exactly the right amount of dressing. You must let it sit for at least 3 hours for the flavors to develop completely. I used grape tomatoes instead of cherry because they taste just fine after being in the fridge and added a smidge more feta cheese. Make sure you add salt and pepper to the dressing as well as the again to the salad after mixing. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this one.

Maybe this salad could be good but OMG was that dressing BITTER. I was embarassed to serve this. Removing from my recipe box for sure.

This was so delicious, and satisfying w/ greek marinated grilled chicken. I, too, added more feta along w/ 1 tsp. of dill weed. Dill is common in Greek cooking, and it was a nice added touch as it balanced the harshness of the oregano. This will be a nice change of pace this summer and many summers to come!

I just made this over memorial weekend and my family loved it! The dressing is great, and I don't really even like garlic:)

I made this last weekend when I was having a Greek meal weekend and it was amazing! I hate it when reviewers change the whole recipe, but this one was perfect the way it was. The dressing was an exact Greek dressing that complimented the pasta. Very good!

My mom gave me an extremely similar recipe that is one of our favorites! The only difference is that it adds chopped pepperoni -- YUM! My version doesn't call for cucumbers but I'm going to try putting them in next time, because it sounds delicious! This is to die for with the pepperoni in it!
