I've been making this for years because it's a great side you can make last minute and take to any pot luck dinner, picnic or bbq. Generally the items are already on hand so there's very little fussing. This salad because of all it's Mediterranean flavors will keep for hours in warm temperatures. —blanka.n
What You'll Need
1 1/2 cups
Whole wheat Orzo pasta
Mixed oil-cured olives, chopped
Large Green onions, white and green part, thinly sliced
Salt and Pepper
Fresh Chopped Parsley
White Wine Vinegar
Grape tomatoes, halved (optional)
Cook pasta according to directions. Have scallions ready and as soon as pasta is cooked throw over chopped scallion. This way it wilts the greens just a bit.
Add the rest of the ingredients, combine well and leave for an hour for the flavors to marry.
