  1. Fill a pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the orzo, and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 11 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.
  2. Place the sun-dried tomatoes into the boiling water in a bowl, and let stand for 10 minutes to plump up. Drain off excess water.
  3. Toss the cooked orzo, sun-dried tomatoes, olive oil, lemon juice, lemon zest, olives, parsley, and feta cheese together in a bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Delicious and super fresh! Great served on the side of sandwiches. I'm definitely going to make this again in the future for picnics and other outings. :)

Salad was a bit bland, and very lemony. I think it would be better with a vinaigrette base.

Easy and yummy! I like sun dried tomatoes so I usually use 1/2 cup, but that is the only thing i adjust.

Loved this salad!

Love this salad...fresh, light and super easy! Crowd pleaser!!!!

easy to make and delicious. Made it as per the recipe the first time. The second time I added red onion,mint and a splash of white balsamic vinegar.

Great base line. I added a bit of minced red onion, and may try with a little red wine vinegar next time.

This dish was absolutely delicious. My husband thoroughly enjoyed it, he couldn't get enough. Thank you Renots

Great salad. I could do without the olives and more feta. And substitute the tomatoes with craisens:)
