Take a look at how top quality these olives are!

I picked up beautiful artichokes and saffron Kalamata olives from Amanida on the farmers market the opposite day and determined to make a easy pasta salad that will showcase them. I used beautiful rainbow pasta for this pasta salad, however after all you could possibly use common benne or bow tie pasta as effectively!

The measurements listed below are actually pointers. Need to use a complete freaking cup of feta cheese? Zero judgement right here! Need to make an Olive palooza? Go nuts! Have oregano as a substitute of basil? Scrumptious! Need to make it heartier? Add my Good Grilled Rooster.

For my farm-to-table backyard lunch (which I’ll let you know about tomorrow!), I garnished this pasta salad with squash blossoms from my backyard, which had been as scrumptious as they had been beautiful!
