Ingredients:

For the orzo salad:

  • 1 lb. package orzo, cooked according to package directions
  • 1 10.5 oz. package grape tomatoes
  • ¼ cup fresh basil
  • 1 6 oz. package crumbled feta cheese

For the dressing:

  • 2/3 cup good olive oil
  • 3 Tablespoons good balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • kosher salt
  • freshly grated pepper

 

Directions:

For the salad dressing, combine olive oil, vinegar, mustard, lemon juice, salt and pepper.  Whisk.  For the orzo salad, as soon as the orzo is cooked, immediately coat in the dressing.  Orzo loves to stick together!  Quarter the tomatoes and chiffonade the basil.  Fold in the tomatoes, basil, and feta.  Serve hot or cold.
