Greek Orzo Salad Recipe


Greek Orzo Salad Recipe

One of my all-time favorite Greek salad recipes. It’s basically a Greek salad, with a twist. 🙂



  1. In a large saucepan bring 3 quarts lightly salted water to boiling. You do not need to add cooking oil to the pasta water; adding oil prevents sauces and seasonings from adhering to the orzo.
  2. Add 8 ounces (1-1/2 cups) dried orzo. Boil the orzo about 10 minutes or until it has a firm, chewy texture, stirring occasionally to prevent it from sticking together.
  3. Drain orzo in a colander and set aside.

Place all of your vegetables, herbs, and cheese in a medium-size bowl. Add the orzo and mix well. Add in lemon juice, olive oil, cumin, and salt & pepper. You can serve it warm or cool.
