  • 1 lb (450g) Fusilli pasta: any short pasta would work for this recipe
  • 1 cup diced Red pepper I used a large red bell pepper
  • cup chopped celery from 1 celery stalk
  • ½ cup feta cheese crumbled: substitute with good old cheddar cheese or mozzarella pearls.
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes halved
  • cup diced red onions
  • 1 cup cucumber chopped
  • 1 teaspoon dried dill substitute for fresh dill
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • Green onions to garnish


  • 1 cup light mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon Lemon juice or as needed


  • Cook the pasta in salted water according to the directions on the packet. Pasta should still be firm to bite. Drain and rinse the pasta under cold water, set aside and leave until completely cool. Make sure you drain any excess water.
