Directions:

  1. Marinate the shrimp in 1 cup of Italian dressing for 1/2 hour. Drain the shrimp then grill, turning until just done, cool before adding to the salad (chicken breast could be substituted for shrimp) 
  2. Cook pasta according to package directions. When pasta is "al dente" drain in colander & rinse with cold water until cool to the touch. Toss pasta again to remove any excess water. Place pasta in large mixing bowl. 
  3. Toss with all remaining ingredients. Add the shrimp last, chill & serve. 

RECIPE NOTE: Always rinse off Feta Cheese before crumbling, brine is very salty.
