Greek Pasta Salad

Now DD2 has arrived I need to be able to rustle up lunch in an instant – or even better just take something I prepared the night before out of the fridge.

DD1 likes pasta, it’s summer, so I thought a pasta salad would be good. I looked up a few pasta salad recipes, but in the end just added some cold pasta to our favourite Greek salad.
