Shell's mention of orzo reminded me of this... I almost forgot to share it!

Greek Style Orzo Salad With Balsamic Vinaigrette
(Makes 6 servings)


(For once this is not my photo )

This is an amazing recipe that flower7 from Recipezaar actually created for a recipe contest. The vinaigrette definitely makes the salad. It's so flavorful!

Vinaigrette
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 1/2 teaspoons dried basil
1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon water
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
3 garlic cloves, minced

Salad
1 cup orzo pasta, uncooked
1/2 cup sliced kalamata olives (I omitted because I'm not an olive fan)
1/2 cup chopped fresh tomatoes
8 ounces garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
5-6 ounces feta soy cheese (Galaxy Foods makes a feta Veggie Crumbles--otherwise I bet you could sub some soy parmesan)

1. Combine vinaigrette ingredients in a small bowl and whisk to combine. Set aside.
2. Cook orzo according to package directions. Drain and transfer to a medium-size bowl.
3. While pasta is still hot, stir in the rest of salad ingredients and dressing to taste.
4. Salad is good immediately while still warm, or also chilled or at room temperature.
