INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Thoroughly wash the vegetables and then dry.

  3. Meanwhile, chop the romaine lettuce and place in a bowl. Thinly slice the red onion and separate into sections. Alternatively, you can chop up the onion for the salad.
  4. Slice the cucumber into thin slices. (I like the peel on, but peel first if desired).
  5. Halve the cherry tomatoes, and slice the olives.
  6. Toss everything together.
  7. For the dressing, combine all of the ingredients in a re-sealable jar and shake until combined. Pour over the salad and toss to combine.
  8. Drain the pasta and run under cold water until cool. Add the pasta into the salad and toss once more.
  9. Crumble feta cheese over the salad to desired amount.
