A delicious Greek pasta salad that skips the unhealthy supermarket salad dressing for a zesty homemade Greek dressing made with real feta cheese and black olives.
Prepare the Greek dressing
In a blender on low speed, combine the red wine vinegar, lemon juice, mustard, garlic, basil, oregano, mint (if using), onion powder, sugar, salt, and black pepper. Slowly drizzle in the olive oil until the entire cup has been added. Transfer to an airtight container (a mason jar with a lid works great) and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving. If the oil separates in the jar just shake it vigorously for 30 second or so.
Make the pasta salad
In a large mixing bowl, toss the cooked spaghetti (or the pasta of your choice) with the red onion, cucumber, tomatoes, olives and cheese with the Greek dressing. Serve chilled. Garnish with the hot pepper flakes (if desired).
