Greek Orzo Salad w/ Shrimp
How easy and delicious is this? Very.
This dish is such a crowd pleaser. Great for a summer BBQ, and you can make this the day before.
Just take out of the fridge about an hour before serving and adjust seasonings.
Greek Orzo Salad w/ Shrimp:
1 box of orzo (cooked per package directions)
1 lb. cooked shrimp (I like to grill mine)
1/2 red onion, sliced or diced
handful of green onions, chopped
handful of kalamata pitted olives, chopped
1 cup of cherry tomatoes, quartered
handful of fresh dill, chopped
handful of fresh parsley, chopped
1 hot house cucumber, sliced
7 oz. container of chopped feta cheese
juice of 2 lemons
1/4 cup of red wine vinegar
1/2 cup of good olive oil
kosher salt and pepper
Once you cook and drain your orzo (about 8 minutes), mix while still warm with some of the dressing.
Toss with the rest of the ingredients and add your feta cheese in last.
This makes delicious leftovers!
Shhh, don't tell your parents but you're turning Greek!
Great summery salad!
