This Mediterranean Pasta Salad Recipe in an simple variation on classic version of this salad. Some ingredients of the classic Mediterranean Salad include kale, salami and sun dried tomatoes. I’m sure that this salad will be your new favorite.
With all of the classic ingredients that are inspired by Mediterranean flavors, so I’ve added some unexpected ones. Olives, sun dried tomatoes and feta cheese is what everyone expects, but we’ve added some salami and baby kale and the flavor is just perfect.
One of the awesome thing about this salad is that it can be made in advance, because it stays fresh for a long period of time. Kale, feta and cucumber maintain they’re texture as they don’t get soggy.
The dressing for Mediterranean salad is my favorite part. Because it’s made out of sun dried tomatoes infused olive oil. So all of that tomato deliciousness is mixed with olive oil. Also plenty of red wine vinegar and oregano make this salad just perfect.
