Add the cold, drained pasta to the bowl and stir to combine the ingredients.
In a small bowl, whisk the olive oil, vinegar, lemon juice, oregano, garlic and salt and pepper with a fork, and then pour it over top of the pasta mixture.
Toss to evenly coat all of the ingredients with the oil mixture, cover, and let the salad marinate for at least 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
Serve cold or at room temperature, and store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
