First, cook the pasta according to package directions for al dente. If the package does not specify al dente, cook for 1 minute less than recommended time.
Next, drain the pasta into a collander and rinse immediately with COLD water to stop the cooking process. Add a cup of ice cubes and toss the pasta salad. Set aside.
In a large bowl, stir together half a bottle of Wish-Bone® House Italian Dressing (15 oz bottle), honey, garlic, and Italian herbs.
Then add all of the prepared vegetables chopped as noted in the ingredient list. Stir to combine well.
Pick any unmelted ice cubes out of the pasta. Next, add the pasta to the bowl and stir and toss to combine the pasta, dressing, and vegetables.
Cover and refrigerate. Thirty minutes before serving, stir in the Feta cheese and remaining Italian dressing.
I have made this with so many varieties of vegetables, and use whatever I have on hand. It is great with fresh, crunchy shreds of cabbage, broccoli, cucumbers, peas and more. You can't really go wrong here.
