The classic Greek flavors of lemon, olive oil, garlic and oregano come together to create this crowd-pleasing pasta salad. Feta cheese and Kalamata olives provided added creaminess and a hearty dose of healthy monounsaturated fatty acids. If you’re throwing a BBQ or hosting a pool party, this dish is perfect for summer entertaining and can be assembled up to a day in advance. For maximum flavor, add the vinaigrette right before serving. This dish would be great with grilled chicken but is satisfying on its own thanks to the hearty whole wheat pasta and protein-packed chickpeas.
Notes: Grating garlic with a grater such as a Microplane is an easy way to ensure that no one bites on a large piece of raw garlic.
