Directions

  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.

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.

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