  Prep Time: 20mins
  Cook Time: 10mins
  Serves: 6 to 8

Ingredients

  • 500g uncooked gluten-free pasta (penne, rigatoni or spirals work well)
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes, cut in half
  • 200g vegan feta cheese
  • 1 cup kalamata olives, sliced
  • 1 cup artichokes, finely sliced
  • ½ cup red onion, sliced
  • ½ cup capsicum, diced
  • 1 ½ cups baby spinach
  • ½ cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup red wine vinegar
  • ½ cup water
  • 2 tsp sea salt
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp each dry oregano and dry basil
  • black pepper to taste

Directions

Step 1

Cook pasta according to package directions. Allow to cool slightly and toss with a little oil to prevent sticking.

Step 2

To make the dressing, place the olive oil, vinegar, water, sea salt, garlic, sugar, oregano, basil & black pepper into a jar. Place the lid on the jar & shake well to combine.

Step 3

Place pasta, cheese, & the remaining ingredients into a very large bowl & toss with around ¾ of the dressing.

Step 4

Serve immediately, or contents can be stored in the fridge for a couple of days. Retain the remaining dressing for serving.

This salad is versatile- you can use regular pasta to make a non- gluten free version and it works just as well.
