  1. Boil the udon 1 minute less than what the package directions say and then immediately drain and wash them with very cold water to chill the noodles.
  2. Put the roasted bell pepper, olives, red onion, parsley, garlic, olive oil, red wine vinegar, oregano and salt into the bowl of a small food processor.
  3. Pulse until the mixture is uniformly chopped, but still a little chunky.
  4. Pour this mixture over the udon noodles and toss to coat evenly.
  5. Plate the pasta and top with the cucumbers and feta.
