Pasta salads always make the best potluck dishes, as they don't require reheating once you arrive at your destination and only get better the longer they sit! I like this Greek version with crumbled feta cheese, as it offers a little something different than the usual Italian salads. - Tara

Tara’s Tidbits®

Any Italian salad dressing can be used in place of the Greek dressing, and shaved Parmesan cheese can be used in place of the feta cheese, if you'd prefer a more Italian-flavored salad.
