GREEK PASTA SALAD

INGREDIENTS:

350 gr. of penne or any other pasta will do

2 cans of tuna fish in brine, drained

2 tomatoes sliced

3 fresh onions chopped

1 small onion sliced

1 cucumber seeded and cut on cubes

half lettuce, rinsed and chopped

1/2 cup feta cheese

1/2 cup black or green olives

plus:

3 tablespoons vinegar and 3 tablespoons of olive oil for the vinaigrette dressing

Cook the pasta as recommended by the manufacturer. Put all vegetables i a big bowl. Mix well. Add the pasta. Now take a small jar, put olive and vinegar inside. Close the jar and shake well until you get a white emulsion. Open the jar and rinse the vinaigrette over the salad. Mix well and then on top sprinkle mashed feta cheese.

We took a day trip to Tarpon Springs, FL and stopped for lunch at an "authentic" Greek restaurant. the Greek salad was served over potato salad. Has anyone ever heard of this? It was kind of strange.

Oooooh! I like the anchovies. Nice touch. I usually get my salt kick from the feta, but this one gives me another reason to eat anchovies.

And old fashioned Greek salad around here is just slices of tomato topped with slices of onion, thyme, olive oil, and a slice or two of feta with a kalamata olive or two on the side.
