Greek Orzo Salad


This is a great way to use up leftover orzo, and goes well with grilled lamb chops.


1 cup cooked orzo with feta

1 cup diced red pepper

1 cup diced cucumber

1 cup diced tomatoes

½ cup kalamata olives, sliced

½ cup green onions, finely sliced

¼ cup chopped fresh parsley

¼ cup chopped fresh dill


1 or 2 garlic cloves, crushed into paste

3 Tbsp olive oil

2 Tbsp pesto

2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice

½ tsp each salt and pepper

Serves 4


In a serving bowl, mix the orzo together with the vegetables and herbs.

Whisk the dressing ingredients together and gently stir into the orzo mixture.
