Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups uncooked orzo
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese crumbled
  • 1 english cucumber sliced and quartered
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes halved
  • 1/4 cup red onions thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup katamala olives halved

Greek Lemon Dressing:

  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice fresh
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar to taste
  • 1 clove garlic pressed or minced
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 tablespoon dill fresh, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar

Instructions

  • Cook orzo according to package directions until al dente. Drain, set aside to cool completely.

  • In a large mixing bowl add all vegetables, orzo, and dressing. Toss to combine.
  • Allow Greek orzo pasta salad to sit for at least 1 hour in the fridge before serving.

Notes

If you prefer a sweeter dressing, add less red wine vinegar to cut back on acidity. If vinaigrette is too tart, add a little more sugar.
