Mediterranean Orzo Spinach Salad
This will be even better tomorrow when I get some feta to add to the leftovers. I had a pound of ground lamb, and thought I had the ingredients, but when I fixed it I found I didn't have any gluten free orzo, so I used brown rice which takes about 40 minutes to cook, ran out of olive oil after browning the meat, so used organic butter for the greens, discovered I didn't have spinach, so used swiss chard leaves chopped, found I didn't have a lemon or the lime I thought I had, so used apple cider vinegar, and oops, my fresh mint was gone, so used dried soaked in some apple cider vinegar to soften, yeah had the parsley, had to sub leeks for the green onions, and had no feta, which I always have! It still turned out good, and after I have the Feta tomorrow it will be even yummier. Sometime I will have to try it with all of the ingredients on hand!
UPDATE after making it - the next day I added feta to the leftovers. I liked it better before the addition of Feta!
