I put lemon and olive oil on just about everything! I made this salad earlier this year from Ina’s Modern Comfort Food cookbook. This recipe has added cucumber, red onion, and spinach if you want to make it into a healthier version of pasta salad by adding greens.

Orzo Salad

1 1/2 cups orzo pasta. Cook, drain, and rinse.

1/2 cucumber

1 cup spinach

1/4 cup chopped red onion

1/4 cup kalamata or green olives chopped

1-2 tablespoons of oil

lemon juice from one whole lemon

salt and pepper to taste

When you are mixing in the olive oil and lemon juice. Go light and you can always add if needed. I love lemon everything and prefer to go heavy on the lemon.

This salad is perfect saved in the fridge for the next day. Add a protein of grilled chicken or salmon on the side.

A good crumble of feta on top will finish it off.
