Recipe by QUIKSANDY
"I invented this fresh and easy recipe when I found myself continually invited to summer potlucks, and I needed a no-fuss dish to make. You can even make this the day before. A quick, easy, and healthy pasta salad that is great for potlucks and always a crowd-pleaser."

1 (15.5 ounce) can
garbanzo beans, drained
1 (10 ounce) container
grape tomatoes, halved
cucumber, peeled and diced
1 (4 ounce) can
sliced black olives, drained
red onion, finely diced
extra-virgin olive oil
fresh lemon juice
chopped fresh basil
salt and ground black pepper to taste
1 (12 ounce) package
tricolored (rainbow) rotini pasta
crumbled feta cheese
While I liked that this wasn't dripping in dressing, it did seem a tad dry after it sat; I found myself savoring the tomato bites for a burst of juiciness. I chose to leave out the olives per personal preference and I used dried basil in lieu of fresh. This was a nice change of pace from the typical Italian dressing or mayo based pasta salad, for sure. THANKS for the recipe, QUIKSANDY!
