Instructions
 

  • Cook pasta according to package instructions. Drain and set aside to allow the pasta to cool (or run it under cold water).  Once the pasta has cooled, add to a large bowl.
  • To the bowl. add the chopped cucumbers. Chop the mint, and add 1/4 of the mint to the bowl, saving the remaining 3/4 of the mint for the dressing.  Add the chopped parsley to the bowl as well.
  • To make the dressing, add the remaining fresh mint, olive oil, garlic, oregano, sugar, red wine vinegar, chili flakes, and salt to a food processor. Pulse until the larger pieces of mint and garlic have been chopped, then set the processor on low until a chunky dressing forms.
  • Pour the dressing over the pasta and cucumber mixture, and toss well. Taste, and add salt and pepper if desired.
  • Serve, or cover and refrigerator to serve later. Pasta salad will last up to 3 days in the refrigerator.
