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!
