Farmer’s Market Recipe: Greek Pasta Salad

I am always on the hunt for a good Farmer’s Market Recipe! Mostly because I absolutely love the Farmer’s Market! Like, I am borderline obsessed. When my parents came to visit last fall, we went to two Famer’s Markets-in one day. Maybe not everyone’s idea of a good time but I was in heaven. As with anything in life that I love, I have a tendency to overdo it at the Farmer’s Market.. I tend to buy whatever looks good and then figure out what to do with it later. This has lead to over-purchasing on more than one occasion.

I can’t stand seeing my precious farmer’s market veggies go to waste. Not to mention the fact that I am just throwing money down the drain. So, I am always on the lookout for farmer’s market recipes. What qualifies as a “farmer’s market recipe”? I define it as any recipe that uses an abundance of vegetables or fresh ingredients, preferably in a flexible manner. AKA, I have a TON of veggies (and maybe some fruits) that are 1 day away from sprouting some sort of life form and I need a recipe that makes them all taste good together STAT!

I didn’t even have to hunt down this farmer’s market recipe. It came to me via The Recipe Club (remember my New Year’s resolution? 6 months in and going strong!) This was my sister’s pick, but she sourced it from foodiecrush via Pinterest (duh!).

I just added my own spin to use up what I had lying around. I won’t re-print the dressing-you can find it over here at foodiecrush. Feel free to customize and share your ideas!
