Lemon Orzo Salad with Feta and Vegetables
My wife’s favorite summer salad. It may sound a little crazy, lemon with sun-dried tomatoes and basil, asparagus and feta, but they all work. This is a versatile salad that can accompany fish, chicken, or beef. And for those new to orzo, it is a pasta that looks like a grain. If you don’t like asparagus, use whatever vegetable you do like. Serves 4 to 8.
You don’t have to wait until your next visit to a Greek restaurant to get a Greek Salad. It’s colorful, with lots of different textures and flavors. This salad can be arranged for presentation in a large bowl, or deconstructed as a make-it-your-own salad bar. Serves 8 or more.
