orzo pasta summer SALAD

You will love this easy & fun dish.  Serve on an avocado (like the picture above) or on a bed of lettuce or with some chicken or fish…I have even eaten it out of the pan!
First make the orzo according to the packaged directions and allow to cool. Season lightly with salt, pepper & EVOO (extra virgin olive oil).
Dice up whatever veggies and herbs you have on hand and gently mix with the orzo pasta (I used tomatoes, red onion, roasted red peppers and Italian parsley). I think it would be great with basil and diced mozzarella…or corn and black beans, some cumin and fresh bell pepper…or olives, cucumber, artichoke hearts and feta…it would even be great with tuna and celery for a crunchy bite. Go crazy trying new combos!
To serve in an avocado just slice it in half, score the flesh inside and pile the salad on…or just mix cubed avo with the salad and get eating!
Good to the last bite!
