This is a make the day before you serve salad, or at a minimum, prepare in the morning for serving with the evening meal, the flavors need time to blend. I made this on 26 Dec 2017, tasted 6 hours later for dinner, outstanding, very well liked by my Thai wife as well.

Instructions
  1. Heat a pot of salted water to boiling, add the pasta and cook until tender, drain well.
  2. While the pasta is cooking, mix together the Dressing ingredients in a good sized mixing bowl.
  3. After the pasta is well drained and cooled a bit, add it to the dressing along with the rest of the Salad ingredients except the cheese. Toss well to coat everything.
  4. Now add the cheese and fold that, then cover and refrigerate for at least 6 hours or overnight.
  5. Serve as a side, or in my opinion, as a main dish as that is what I will probably do.
Recipe Notes

I cannot price pepperoni at this time, I used a 150 gram pack of smoked ham for 90 Baht. For the Feta, that is 150 Baht for 275 grams, use half the package (75 Baht), cut the block in half and crumble that for right about a cup. Based on the Feta and smoked ham, for 4 servings, this is about $1.22 per serving.

Variants: 1. In place of pepperoni, use thin sliced smoked ham. 2. Use what you have, like a whole bell pepper instead of cup, or a package of pepperoni or smoked ham, like a cup or so, etc.

This is an Israeli bread salad, and sounds delicious! On my to cook list. This does call for the use of toasted pita bread, if in a pinch, regular sliced bread, toasted, should work ok. Link to the shortcut is listed in the Recipe Notes section.
