One of my absolute favorite places to eat lunch is at a restaurant called Ashely Mac's in Birmingham. They have THE BEST chicken sandwich, and I am in LOVE with their Greek Pasta Salad. I'm not really a pasta salad person, but Ashely Mac's pasta salad is to-die-for!!! I could just eat the Greek Pasta Salad and be happy! Well, that probably isn't true. Ashley Mac's cupcakes are incredible! SO, maybe Greek Pasta Salad and cupcakes! LOL! I found the recipe for their chicken salad on the local paper's website and immediately whipped up a batch! It tasted just like the real thing! Woohoo!

This recipe makes a TON of Greek Pasta Salad. This would be great for a potluck.  I usually half the recipe when I make it. We ate this for several days with lunch and dinner. This will keep for 3 to 5 days in the refrigerator. I love the flavor of the dressing and all of the yummy crumbled feta! This goes great with sandwiches, grilled chicken, just about anything. Heck, we ate only pasta salad for dinner one night. We just can't get enough of this yummy side dish!!!

    1. Not at all. I hate mayonnaise - as in, don't even like to touch the jar. I couldn't taste any mayonnaise in this pasta salad. All the other flavors shine in this pasta salad.

  6. How many does this recipe serve? I’m having a couples party and will be serving approximately 40-45 people. How many times this recipe do I need to make?

    1. I haven't tried it with Greek yogurt, but it should be fine. That is a very common substitute. Enjoy!
