greek orzo salad
Pasta salads are a delicious way to beat the heat and feed your family during the summer. This Greek Orzo Salad is quick to make and feeds a small crowd – perfect for your next picnic!
With summer temperatures rising and families moving outdoors to beat the heat by the pool, it’s no surprise that July is National Grilling Month. Grilling is a great way to avoid excess heat in the kitchen while still feeding the family a delicious and nourishing meal. Plus, the social aspect of gathering friends and family for a BBQ just can’t be beat. I’ll leave the grilling to you, but I’ve got a side salad that is the perfect pairing with grilled chicken or shrimp.
I have been making Greek pasta salads for decades due to their bold flavors and simplicity. In the past, I’ve tied everything together with either a bottled Greek dressing or a hodge-podge of oils, vinegars and spices that I had on hand. The discovery of the GOOD SEASONS cruet and dressing packets has taken this salad to an entirely new level of bold authentic flavor. Mixing the dressing from scratch is a breeze thanks to the easy to follow measurement lines on the side of the GOOD SEASONS cruet and the end result is fresh and delicious.
Unlike many pasta salads, this variation does not contain any egg or dairy based dressings, making it ideal for outdoor gatherings. It is satisfying, yet filling and contains grains and vegetables. As far as salad recipes go, this just may be my favorite!
