Growing up I was never a huge fan of pasta salad. In fact, given the choice between pasta salad and potato salad, I would always choose potato salad.

That was probably because the only pasta salad I was exposed to was soggy pasta drowning in a bottle of Italian dressing.

But now that I’ve discovered that there are pretty much an infinite number odf ways to make pasta salad, they have my interest.

This Tzatziki Pasta Salad is far from ordinary. It has a creamy and a little tangy Greek yogurt dressing and plenty of Greek flavors: feta cheese, kalamata olives, cucumbers, and fresh dill, plus a few marinated artichoke hearts and sun-dried tomatoes.

If you are a fan of Greek food you will really dig this Tzatziki Pasta Salad. It goes great with burgers and grilled chicken.

  1. This is fantastic!!! One of my favorite new recipes that I’ve tried in a LONG time. Thanks for the recipe. The dressing would be a fantastic dip for veggies or marinade for chicken or enjoyed directly with a spoon! LOL

  2. Just tried this recipe and LOVED it! My 3 year old kept coming back for more. We will definitely be making this recipe again. Thank you!

  3. Just made this salad today and it is soooo good! Wasn’t sure if my sun dried tomatoes were still good, so left them out. But oh my, the rest of the favors are awesome. My other half could not get over how flavorful the dressing was with only the little bit of mayo. We were dipping veggies in the dressing before I put it on the salad. Definitely a keeper!

  4. This is such a creative pasta salad! We can’t get enough of them lately since the weather has been so hot and my son actually really loves them. I am drooling over those kalamata olives and artichoke hearts! So delicious!

  5. I agree with you as I have never been into pasta salads too but I think this will be my favorite soon as it’s mostly healthy and feels so much better than eating one drenched in those bottled dressings!

    1. Though it sounds nice it’s not tzatziki unless there’s tons of garlic in it.Yougurt and cucumber don’t make tzatziki GARLIC does!!
