Greek Orzo Salad

Greek Orzo Salad
  1. 1/3 cup olive oil
  2. 3 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  3. 1 clove garlic, minced Coupons
  4. Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  1. 1 1/4 cups (8 oz) dry orzo
  2. 1 cup (5 oz) crumbled feta
  3. 1 medium English cucumber, diced
  4. 1 (10.5 oz) pkg. grape tomatoes, halved
  5. 1/2 cup sliced kalamata olives or 3/4 cup sliced black olives
  6. 1/2 cup chopped red onion, rinsed under water to removed harsh bite
  7. 3 Tbsp chopped fresh basil
  8. 2 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
  1. In a jar mix together olive oil, lemon juice, garlic and season with salt and pepper to taste (don't add too much salt because the feta and kalamata olives are pretty salty), set aside.
  2. Cook orzo according to directions listed on package. Drain and let cool (about 5 minutes. They'll start to stick to each other a bit but that's fine the dressing will break it up).
  3. Add all of the salad ingredients, including cooked orzo, to a large bowl and toss. Pour dressing over top and toss to evenly coat. Store in refrigerator, serve within a few hours for best results.
