Hi, I'm Victoria Shanta Retelny, Nutrition Expert and Author of The Essential Guide To Healthy Healing Foods. Today, I'm going to show you how to make a Greek pasta salad with artichokes and feta. It's real simple. I happen to use a tricolor pasta which does have more nutritional value because it does have actual beets and tomatoes in it and spinach. So, it's tasty. I've already made my pasta. So, literally just put your pasta into a boiling water for about ten minutes or however you'd like it. Some people like it a little less firm and some people like it more firm. So, just place your pasta in a bowl and toss it. And then basically, you're going to to put artichokes, and these are marinated artichokes. I prefer to use these because they come in their own marinade and I basically use that marinade as my dressing. So, they're fantastic, they make such good flavor to this salad. So, we're putting our artichokes and artichokes are such a wonderful vegetable. They're actually a prebiotic; meaning that they help your digestive system function properly and they add a lot of great nutrients to the dish. Then, we're going to use a little bit of olive and I'm just going to finely dice the olives. Okay. Once again, you're getting some really good beneficial fats in these olives as well, and add some cherry tomato. Now, you can use regular tomatoes and just chop these up as small or as large as you'd like. So, you're going to add your tomatoes and I use a little bit of peperoncini as well. It gives it a little bit of spice, they're very spicy pepper. So, you just add your peperoncinis in here, just a few over the top and your feta cheese. Okay. You can use low-fat feta also. I just use a little bit because you don't want to overpower the dish with cheese, but it does give it a nice flavor and it does add a little saltiness to it. And then you take your marinade from your artichokes and just lightly pour it on and toss. And that is your Greek salad with artichokes and feta. I hope you enjoyed this recipe.
