More tips for this Greek pasta salad with feta:
Now this recipe is already incredibly simple but there are a few tips to make it even easier I wanted to share. This recipe calls for diced onions and bell peppers.
Another time saving tip is to use a small food chopper or food processor to quickly and easily chop the onions and peppers.
If you do not have one of these, I highly recommend them. They are such a time saver and you make cooking so fast and easy.
After you have what you need for the Greek Salad, freeze the rest for other recipes. I usually just chop the entire vegetable and freeze what I don’t need.
It’s so nice to be able to just take the diced onion out of the freezer for recipes. This is how I meal prep. It’s so quick and easy and helps get dinner on the table fast.
