Mediterrane Orzo Pasta Salad

Prepared By Jill

Dressing Preparation:

In a bowl whisk together:
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 6 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tsp lemon zest
  • 1-2 garlic gloves, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp oregano

Salad Preparation:

  1. Cook and drain 16oz. Orzo pasta, rinse and drain well
  2. Cut and dice: 1 red pepper, 1 yellow pepper, 1 sweet onion, 3 carrots
  3. Toss with pasta
  4. Add sliced black olives (as much as you like, I omit all together!)
  5. Add dressing, and just prior to serving top with 4 oz. crumbled Feta cheese.
This salad is not supposed to be chilled prior to serving. Just make the pasta and rinse with cold water so it cools down, then add chopped veggies, dressing, top with Feta, and you're ready to serve!
