Orzo Salad (Diane Feller)

  • 1 cup uncooked orzo
  • 1/2 cup sliced scallions (or to taste)
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese (2 ounces, I use more)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh dill (or to taste)
  • 1 can chickpeas (19 oz), drained
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon cold water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (optional; I skip this)
  • 1/2 teaspoon bottled minced garlic (or to taste)

Cook pasta, drain and rinse.  Combine pasta, scallions, cheese, dill and chickpeas in large bowl, tossing to combine.  Mix lemon juice and remaining ingredients in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk.  Drizzle over pasta mixture, toss.  Put in refrigerator to cool before serving.

Diane’s note: “I generally make extra dressing, as is gets absorbed. And I definitely do this to taste, so each time it is a little different. My kids love this, and don’t realize they are actually eating something healthy.”
