Tomato-Feta Orzo Salad

This simple orzo salad is perfect for summer at the cottage or picnics. It took me no time to make and was a popular hit on Canada Day. If you want to improve the flavor you could grill or roast the tomatoes first, but it is good just as is. I am going hiking this weekend and will likely make a large bowl of this to take with me and help energize me through what might be a long long hike.

2 cups orzo
3 cups cherry tomatoes halved
2/3 cups feta
1/2 cup fresh coriander, chopped
1/2 cup fineldy diced red onion
4T red wine vinegar
2 T olive oil
lemon zest
juice of 1/2 lemon
salt and pepper to taste

Cook the pasta, rinse and drain it. Pour pasta in a large bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients and toss well. Place in fridge and take out 5-10min before serving.

I love orzo in salads & soups. This combination is really healthy and looks tasty.

Definitely lovely summer food. I've got to get back to using orzo; somehow, it dropped out of my repertoire, and I miss it!

This looks delicious! I'm going to have more cherry tomatoes than I know what to do with shortly too. This would be great for lunches, will definitely be trying. Thanks!

I'm another orzo fan, but you have to go to a specialist Italian or Greek shop to get it here.
Your salad looks super!
