I am reposting this recipe, now that nice weather is here. It is one of my favorite recipes and, SHHHH, it's pretty good for you!

This recipe is perfect for spring and summer days. Serve it up cold, just make sure you mix it real well before dishing it up because the dressing will settle. It makes a large bowl full and is perfect at picnics or gatherings.

GREEK SALAD

Ingredients:

12 oz. angel hair pasta
1 can sliced black olives
1 can diced tomatoes (recipe called for pimento but I prefer tomatoes; drained)
3/4 cup mayonnaise
4 1/2 Tbs. Cavenders greek seasoning
3/4 cup olive oil
4 1/2 Tbs. lemon juice
1 bunch green onions sliced w/tops (optional)

Instructions:

Cook pasta, drain and rinse.

Combine mayonnaise, olive oil, greek seasoning and lemon juice. Pour over pasta.

Add onions, black olives and tomatoes.

Mix well.

Chill.

Mix really well before serving to redistribute the salad dressing.

Recipe Notes:
You can add Feta cheese, if desired.
