I am a sucker for a good pasta salad. Did you happen to catch our 10 SIMPLE SUMMER PASTA SALADS post?  Well we have one more to add to that luscious list.  This Greek Isles pasta salad one uses one of my kid’s favorite pasta shapes butterflies (or bow ties).  It’s bright and beautiful and full of good for you fruits and veggies like cherry tomatoes and spinach. It’s also packed with protein rich chick peas. It’s finished off with a bold vinaigrette and of course Feta cheese. It wouldn’t be Greek without that now would it?
