GF Vegan Greek Pasta Salad Two Ways

June 26, 2020
Lately I have been living in a great indecision and it's affecting my eating habits, too. I just can't make up my mind about what I want, so I usually end up making two version of a dish, at least, if not more. What is wonderful in this Greek pasta salad, is that it's versatile so you can make a combo of your own. Simply cook the pasta, add the veggies, vegan feta and any kind of sauce of the two I present here. Perfect for meal prep or lazy days, and it keeps in the fridge for up to 3 days.
