Ingredients

  • 1 cup uncooked orzo
  • 2.5 ounces cubed feta (I used one packed in oil + herbs)
  • 1-2 tablespoons red onion chopped
  • 1 (10.5 ounce) package little tomatoes (grape or cherry) halved
  • 4 Persian (mini) cucumbers sliced
  • Kalamata olives pitted & chopped, to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1-2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil 
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley chopped (optional)

Instructions

  1. Cook orzo al dente according to package directions. Drain and rinse with cold water.
  2. Prep your other ingredients.
  3. Once the orzo has cooled, add all ingredients to a large bowl. I suggest starting with 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar, tossing the salad, then adding more if needed. Garnish with fresh parsley if using.
