 Ingredients List

  • ~~ Creamy Feta Dressing ~~
  • 1/2 cup 0 fat Greek yogurt
  • 1 Tbsp 1% buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup light feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1 small shallot, diced
  • 1/2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/8 tsp dried dill
  • 1/8 tsp dried thyme
  • sprinkle garlic salt
  • sprinkle onion powder
  • sprinkle black pepper
  • ~~ Salad ~~
  • 1 cup Catelli Healthy Harvest whole wheat rotini
  • 2 large cucumbers, chopped
  • 18 grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 cup chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1 small shallots, diced
  • 1/4 cup light feta, crumbled


place Greek yogurt, buttermilk, feta, shallot, olive oil, and spices in a blender.

Process mixture until smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides as necessary.

Chill dressing until ready to use. The longer it can sit the more the flavors can mingle. Try to let it sit for at least an hour.
Prepare salad - Cook whole wheat pasta according to package directions. Drain and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking process and cool pasta. Place pasta in a large bowl.
Add in cucumbers, tomatoes, chickpeas, shallots, and half the feta (keep the other half to sprinkle on top when you serve it.) Stir well to combine.
Stir in the prepared dressing until well combined.
The dressing may seem thick but it thins when you mix it with the salad.

Sprinkle with the remaining feta and serve.
This recipe makes 4 large servings. If you are serving this as a side with a meal you should get way more servings. I counted the 4 as "eating just the salad as a meal" servings.
I'm thinking I might even throw a chopped up cooked chicken breast in there and make it an even more complete meal. The calories would maybe be 100 calories per serving more at the most. A complete meal coming in under 400 calories! Those are my favorite.
