Grecian-Inspired Macaroni Salad

Here is a recipe from Taste Of Home. I changed it slightly by adding only half the pasta. I like my salads saucy. If you like yours drier, use the recommended amount.


  •  cups uncooked elbow macaroni
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/2 cup chopped peeled cucumber
  • 1/2 cup sliced red onion
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 cup Greek olives, chopped


  • Cook macaroni according to package directions; drain and rinse with cold water. Cool completely.
  • For dressing, in a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, sugar, oregano, zest, mustard, salt and pepper. In a large bowl, combine feta, cucumber, onion, tomatoes, olives and macaroni. Add dressing; gently toss to coat. Refrigerate until serving.
