Mediterranean Pasta Salad

One of our favorite pasta salads is this light Mediterranean version. The feta cheese gives it that tangy burst of flavor when it's combined with the vinaigrette. The cucumber lightens the load while the pepperoncini ads a dose of slight spiciness and sweetness. It's the perfect salad to pack in to a mason jar and take on a picnic, or you can prepare a larger amount for a summer cookout.
