  • A lb of pasta (i used tricolor fusilli)
  • A cup of chopped vine tomatoes
  • Handful of chopped sundried tomatoes
  • Smattering of feta cheese
  • A cup of baby spinach
  • A cup of corn (I used canned though fresh would be preferred)
  • 2 tablespoons of virgin olive oil
  • tablespoon of lemon juice


  • Bring a pot of water (slighty salted) to a boil and cooked pasta for about 10 minutes or until al dente
  • Take out pasta and drain of water
  • Add in the tomatoes, vine and sundried, feta cheese, spinach, corn to pasta
  • Mix olive oil and lemon juice for a simple dressing
  • Dress the pasta salad and mix well
  • Enjoy!

Simple right? Go with any combo of ingredients you want. It’s also a great way to use up veggies you have in the fridge.

  1. Love the tricolor pasta, makes it look so interesting! We love salads, our favorite at the moment is chopped cucumber, peppers, olives and feta mixed with some cold quinoa. We use the same simple dressing as yours, lemon and olive oil with plenty of black pepper. It’s nice and refreshing in the heat!
