So excited to share this easy yet super delicious Greek orzo salad recipe. It's filling, fresh and perfect for a little date night meal ❤

Orzo is a rice like pasta, made from durum wheat. It's often used in soups and salads and in some Mediterranean dishes. Orzo is high carb, low fat food. I love it because it keeps me full for hours and it gives me a great energy boost when I'm feeling frail or hungry. Because it is basically pasta, you can prepare it by simply boiling it in hot water. I always recommending following the package instructions as some brands require longer cooking time.

This salad is definitely recommended to anyone who wants a change from typical pasta and red sauce to something more fun, colorful and nutritious.
