Easy Pasta Salad


  • 16-ounce package of pasta

  • 12-15 cherry tomatoes
  • 6 ounces feta cheese
  • 1 tablespoon dried basi
  • 1 tablespoon EasyKale®


  • Red onions

When you think salad, leafy greens are a no-brainer. But pasta salad? Too often adding greens to a pasta salad—even lettuce or spinach much less kale—changes the dynamic completely and not in a great way. Fortunately there's EasyKale® so we can add the goodness of kale to a pasta salad without changing the experience. This is Bilal's favorite quick-and-easy pasta salad; it's got a bit of a Greek influence with Kalamata olives and feta. It's easy to make in 15 minutes or less. As a bonus it's even better the next day!


  1. Cook the pasta according to the package until al dente or just a little past depending on your preference.
  2. Drain the pasta and run cold water over it to help it cool.
  3. While the pasta is cooling chop the tomatoes and olives into halves or quarters.
  4. Place the cool pasta it in a large mixing bowl.
  5. Add the olives and tomatoes and stir to mix them.Add the feta cheese and mix again.
  6. Finally top with the dried basil and EasyKale®.
  7. Mix until ingredients are incorporated.
