Greek Pasta Salad

  • 1 box rotini/rotelle
  • 1 can small or medium black olives, thinly sliced
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 cup oil of your choice
  • 1 cup vinegar -- cider is my favorite
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • Celery salt/seed -- to taste
  • Thyme -- to taste

Set pasta to boil (about 10 minutes). During this time, blend the oil, vinegar, garlic, and spices to make a dressing (don't use my exact measurements--use amounts that you like). Drain the pasta. Pour the dressing over the pasta while still hot (this helps the flavors set). Cover and place in fridge to cool. Slice olives and peppers. When pasta mixture is cool, add these last ingredients and stir. This makes a very tasty and pretty salad.
