Greek Orzo Salad

in Recipes

Submitted by Marilyn S.

Use one box of orzo — cook according to directions and drain; add 1/4 c. olive oil (sounds like a lot but otherwise it gets a little dry) and let cool.  Add about 3/4 cup crumbled or cubed feta cheese, some Greek olives if you like them, sun-dried tomatoes, toasted pine nuts or slivered almonds (about 1/4 c. of each), 1 tsp. rosemary (dried), 1/2 c. chopped green onions (and for a bizarre sweet hit, I sometimes add some raisins, currants or dried cranberries.  It works, trust me. ) Mix all together and chill.  I could eat this every single day for a week.  Sometimes I do after everyone else is bored of it.  Big favorite of my boys to take to school for lunch.
