Greek Orzo Pasta Salad

Greek Orzo Pasta Salad

This Greek Orzo Pasta Salad is ready to be your go-to Summer dish for barbecues, potlucks, work lunches or meals at home. It’s super easy to put together and makes a great side dish to anything tasty off the grill or a fresh and portable main dish for lunch. Just 125 calories for a side dish portion or 250 for a main course lunch! You can also easily double or triple the recipe for a larger crowd. The Greek dressing is bright and herb-y, the tomatoes are juicy, the cucumbers add crunch and the Feta and olives are rich and salty. I love orzo (a pasta shaped sort of like rice) and I think it works perfectly in this dish. I can’t wait to make this again for our next backyard barbecue!
