Greek Pasta Salad

insalata di past/pasta salad

It was a sad day in Atlanta, for me, when eatZi’s closed its doors here.  Even though there are still two locations open, Dallas, TX isn’t quite the hop, skip, and a jump from here.  So, while I whined, complained, and used some not-so-ladylike-language, life went on.  Hrumph.

Then, Alon’s moved into eatZi’s Perimeter location. Similar to its predecessor, the variety of gastronomic goodies keep my attention while I wait in my to-go-order queue.  The new bakery/market doesn’t have the sundried tomato Gemelli pasta that fueled my brain during my doctorate program, but Alon’s does have a ton of other tasty treats.  Recently, I have honed in on the Greek pasta salad.  When there wasn’t any available during my visit last week, I wondered why I just didn’t make a batch myself?

So, that’s what I did.  Instead of the shells pasta like Alon’s, I decided the Les Pâtes d’Alsace Valfleuri Lasagnettes would add a fun factor in a homemade version. Now, if I could just read the (French) website and learn more about the products!  Luckily, the cheeses laid wait for me next to the pasta bins, as if the curds knew I couldn’t speak French, knowing Feta was next on my list. Greek isn’t exactly a language I can mutter, either, but the Mt. Viko feta cheese was just the thing for my salad.

This is my new favorite lunch, nudging out the Super Healthy Salad (with Miso-Ginger Dressing).  I wonder what with be the next lunch to come out as first place favorite?  What is your go-to lunch?

Lovely pasta salad. My favourite lunch at the moment is a pasta salad with red pepper pesto. You can find the recipe here: http://pinkpolkadotfood.wordpress.com/2012/03/25/meatless-mondays-pasta-salad-with-sweet-red-pepper-pesto/

Have a super day!

This looks delicious. I love pretty much anything Greek. I wonder, have you ever thought about guest teaching at a cooking school? I volunteer at Salud, the WH cooking school and we often have guest instructors. Just a thought.
