    Liza Lou's Note:

    This is a more exciting spin on a side dish I had at a restaurant once. I eat this for lunch all by itself! If you're serving this to a group of people, since everyone likes their salad a little differently, I suggest having a small bowl of crumbled Feta, some lemon juice, and a small bowl of chopped Kalamata olives. That way everyone can change it up and customize it!

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 4

    Yield:

    cups

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      -Put a large pot on to boil. Once it reaches a boil, salt the water generously.
    2. 2
      -While you're waiting for the water to boil; chop your vegetables and parsley, crumble your Feta (unless you bought it pre-crumbled, I do), and juice your lemons. (You could also do this beforehand but I'm a huge multitasker).
    3. 3
      -Boil the orzo for 5-7 minutes, make sure to pay attention to it's doneness because if you overcook it the salad won't have the correct texture.
    4. 4
      -Once the orzo is soft all the way through, shock it in ice-water, drain and put in a large mixing bowl.
    5. 5
      -Add the extra virgin olive oil and immediately stir it in well so the orzo doesn't stick to itself.
    6. 6
      -Add all of the vegetables, feta cheese, lemon juice (sparingly at first, make sure you don't make it too lemony; you can add more later!), parsley and a dash or salt and pepper. Stir well to combine everything evenly.
    7. 7
      -Put the salad into a sealable container or cover the top of your bowl with plastic wrap. Place in the refrigerator and let sit for at least an hour!
    8. 8
      -This should stay good for 3-5 days! Enjoy!

      This made a delicious side with Easy Lightly Fried Fish - Thyme and Spices - Mediterranean. I did reduce the amount of olives but stayed pretty true to the recipe after that. I made it a couple of hours before serving and allowed it to chill and the flavors blend. Made for *PAC Spring 2009*
