It's picnic season around here and one thing I am always looking for is easy recipes to make and take. This Picnic Perfect Penne and Feta Salad is delicious and ready in no time.
I'm always on the hunt for easy recipes that can be adapted. This totally fits the bill. You can probably raid your pantry and fridge for most, if not all, of these ingredients. This salad comes together quickly and you can add cooked chicken or tuna to make this a main dish instead of a side dish. It's delicious either way.
My family really enjoyed this and my little guy helped me trim the fresh chives from our side yard.
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup feta cheese crumbles
¼ cup snipped fresh chives
Salt and pepper to taste
1 pound penne pasta
Cook penne pasta according to the directions on package for an al dente result.
Toss gently with olive oil, feta cheese, salt and pepper, and chives.
Chill or serve immediately.
