Party Pasta Salad with Feta

party pasta salad

This party pasta salad  with feta cheese is ideal for barbecues and has as main ingredient a special salad, Frisee.
Frisee salad has curly leaves and is also called chicory or endive. For this salad we are using short pasta such as ellbow or bow tie pasta, short macaroni pasta is great too. The red pepper brings some color into it and the vinaigrette gives it a mild Italian  flavor but it is an authentic German recipe. It makes a great salad for your next party. Happy Cooking.
