- 2 Tbsp red wine vinegar
- 1 tsp oregano

Once boiling, add the bow-tie pasta and cook for 10 minutes. While the pasta is cooking, prep your cucumber, grape tomatoes, red onion, and kalamata olives.
Drain in a colander and run cold water over the pasta to cool it off.
Add the cooled pasta, cucumber, grape tomatoes, red onion, olives, and feta cheese to a large bowl.
In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, red wine vinegar, oregano, and garlic salt.
Pour in the greek vinaigrette and stir the pasta salad so the dressing is fully incorporated.
