Greek Orzo Salad

Greek Orzo Salad

Greek Orzo Salad – this delicious pasta salad is made with tender orzo, bright tomatoes, crisp cucumbers, plenty of fresh herbs, tangy feta and olives, and it’s all tossed in a zesty lemony vinaigrette. It’s a breeze to prepare and can be ready in 25 minutes or less!

This is the perfect thing to make year-round. It’s a nutritious, well rounded, veggie-packed pasta salad.

You can make as is or toss in some cooked chicken or shrimp (just make a little bit of extra dressing). And if you want to make it even healthier you can use whole wheat pasta in place of the standard semolina based orzo.

This is brimming with fresh Mediterranean flavor and it is so easy to throw together. It’s mostly just a bit of chopping, cooking orzo pasta and whisking a quick dressing.

We love it for lunch but it’s always so welcomed at dinner too, and it’s delicious paired with salmon or grilled chicken. It may likely soon be one of your favorite recipes to make with orzo!
