Mediterranean Orzo Salad

A huge thank you to our friends at Whole Foods Market - Kentlands

Great as a light main course or lunch, or even a great side along some grilled chicken!

Ingredients: 

  • 1/2 pound whole wheat orzo (rice-shaped pasta)
  • 1/4 pound baby spinach (about 4 packed cups)
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 24 pieces sun-dried tomatoes in extra-virgin olive oil, chopped, plus 1 tablespoon oil from the jar
  • 1 (15-ounce) can garbanzo beans (also called chickpeas), rinsed and drained

Method: 

Cook orzo in a large pot of boiling salted water until al dente, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain, rinse in cold water and drain again. In a large bowl, toss with remaining ingredients and serve.
