Ingredients

  • 1 cup dry orzo pasta
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes halved
  • 1 cucumber chopped
  • 1 yellow bell pepper chopped
  • 1 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/2 cup Kalamata olives coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 small red onion thinly sliced and cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 3 tablespoons freshly chopped oregano or 2 teaspoons dried
  • [Greek Salad Dressing]

Instructions 

  • Cook the orzo according to package directions. Place in a colander and rinse under cold water and drain well.
  • Place the orzo in a large bowl. Add the cherry tomatoes, cucumber, bell pepper, feta cheese, kalamata olives, red onion and chopped oregano, then toss with the desired amount of Greek dressing until well coated.
  • Serve and enjoy!

Notes

  • Roasted bell peppers work well in this pasta salad!
  • Dressing may be made up to a few days in advance.
  • The pasta salad may be made a few hours in advance, but the orzo will absorb the dressing. Simply toss with 1/3 cup or so of dressing, and add more just before serving.
  • Orzo may be substituted with your favorite gluten-free or regular pasta.
