Orzo Salad with Herbs

Orzo Salad with Herbs

When the weather gets warmer I am craving salads. I was inspired to make this Orzo Salad with Herbs after eating a similar one at a local food store. It's expensive to buy and you don't get a lot of it. My recipe makes a big batch. My son brings it to school with a side of protein like chicken or hard boiled eggs. For lunch today I served this salad on top of healthy greens: spinach and kale. If you never bought kale you should, it's one of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet!

ORZO SALAD WITH HERBS

Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups Orzo
1/2 red bell pepper, diced
1/2 to 1 cup marinated artichoke hearts, drained and coarsely chopped
1/4 cup red onion, diced
3 tablespoons capers, drained
1/2 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1/2 cup fresh dill, chopped
6 green onions, sliced
3 tablespoons olive oil
juice of one lemon
salt to taste

Directions:
1- Cook Orzo in 5 cups of water for about 7-8 minutes. When cooked, drain and rinse under cold water. Place in a large bowl.
2- Add olive oil, lemon juice, bell pepper, artichoke hearts, red onion, green onions, fresh herbs. Season with salt. Toss well.
3- Serve on top of salad. Keep in refrigerator until ready to eat. 

Eat the salad within 3 days.

Enjoy!

  1. This is lovely and I intend to make it as soon as I get the one thing I'm lacking - the red onion. Exactly the kind of delicious and interesting salad for breakfast, lunch, or supper - thank you!
