This easy Gluten-Free Greek Pasta Salad is vegan, dairy-free, allergy-free, loaded with fresh crunchy veggies, & a homemade greek vinaigrette! A healthy Mediterranean cold side dish recipe that takes the ingredients of a classic Greek salad, juicy tomatoes, crisp cucumbers, kalamata olives, red onion, green pepper, & adds pasta!


  • 12 oz Gluten-Free Penne*
  • 1 Pint of Grape or Cherry Tomatoes (halved)
  • 2 Cups Sliced, Quartered English or Persian Cucumber
  • 1 Cup of Sliced, Chopped Green Bell Pepper
  • 1/2 Cup Thinly Sliced Red Onion
  • 1/2 Cup Halved Kalamata Olives**

For the Greek Vinaigrette:


  1. Boil the gluten-free penne according to package directions, just to al dente to keep the noodles from getting mushy.
  2. In the meantime, slice and chop the bell pepper, cucumber, tomatoes, red onion, kalamata olives and toss them into a large bowl.
  3. Drain and rinse the pasta under cold water to stop the cooking process before adding them to the chopped veggies.
  4. In a small bowl, measure and whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, lemon juice, and seasonings before adding the vinaigrette to the pasta salad.
  5. Gently mix and toss everything together in the bowl to combine.
  6. Let the pasta salad marinate and chill in the fridge, for at least 30 minutes (preferably overnight), before serving.
  7. Enjoy cool, at room temperature.


*You can use another shape gluten-free pasta if you don't have penne.

**Make sure you buy pitted kalamata olives. You can use black olives too.

***If you would like to add some vegan feta, I recommend the top allergen-free feta from esti Foods.

****Feeling fancy? Add a dash of dried mint to your vinaigrette!
