Mindy's Version of Greek Pasta Salad

My mom makes a pasta salad very similar to this and I LOVE it! My version is very similar except for a few changes...no red onions, additional oregano, and I use a mixture of pastas!! Everyone always wants the recipe it is so yummy!!
Greek Pasta Salad

1 12 oz. bag "Wacky Mac" veggie shapes pasta (I buy mine at Walmart- it has purple wheels, green penne rigate, orange rotelli, and white shells! It brings a lot of color to the salad!)
16 oz pasta (in various shapes-radiatori, wheels, bowties, rotelli)
1 square feta cheese, crumbled
2 cans olives, cut in half
1 package grape tomatoes, cut in half
2 peeled cucumbers, diced
6 peeled carrots, sliced
1 bunch broccoli, cut into florets
1 head cauliflower, cut into florets
2 bottles zesty Italian dressing
1 T dried oregano
Salt and pepper to taste

Cook pasta, drain and rinse with cold water. Add all ingredients and chill until serving! This recipe makes A LOT- one big HUGE bowl!! Perfect for parties!!
