Easy Greek Pasta Salad

Summer is here, which means BBQ’s galore!  Most people look forward to burgers, hot dogs, sausages, etc., but not me. I look most forward to yummy salads and sides, since they often utilize ingredients that aren’t necessarily available all throughout the year – or just taste better in the summer. So, I introduce to you my easy-peasy Greek Pasta Salad.

 I’d like to start off by saying that I cannot believe that I am actually posting this recipe.  Why, you ask?  Because it’s pretty much the easiest coleslaw recipe on  earth.  Actually, it’s so easy that I’m not even sure it could be considered a “recipe”.  But I do feel like it’s a public service that I do post this recipe, because it is oh so simple and everyone will ask you how you made it and if you can shoot them over the recipe.

Asian Fried Quinoa

One night last week, my very sweet hubby decided to make me dinner.  Since the weather is getting nice here in Toronto, he decided to grill some veggies and make his super yummy and very healthy grilled vegetable sandwiches.  These are by far one of my favourite things that he makes.  He grills zucchini, peppers, eggplant, onions and peppers, crumbles feta on top and dresses the ciabatta bun with a homemade garlic mayo before piling the veggies on.  It is delish and I am salivating just thinking about it right now.  So, he meant really well, but unfortunately our dinner plans fizzled because our BBQ decided to stop working.
