Orzo & Cherry Tomato Salad
8 ounces orzo pasta
Black Olives sliced
1 pint red cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
1 pint yellow cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
1 green pepper sliced thin and chunked
1 large cucumber, peeled and chopped
2 green onions, thinly sliced
2 Tbsp minced fresh oregano
Juice of a lemon
Black pepper to taste
1 Bring a large pot of well salted water to a rolling boil. Add the orzo, stirring it so that it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan. Cook, uncovered, at a high boil until al dente, cooked through but still a bit firm. Drain the pasta and rinse with cold water to stop the pasta from cooking further.
2 Put pasta in a large bowl. At this point you can make ahead and chill until you are ready to serve . Toss with the rest of the ingredients, the tomatoes, cucumber, green onions, green pepper,black olives, oregano, lemon juice, and black pepper.
