My friend Will made a great chicken and pasta dish, not to mention his first cake. I made a light side dish that turned out pretty flavorful despite its simplicity. I'll be making this one again.
Orzo and Spinach Salad (serves 4)
- 1/3 cup uncooked orzo
- 2 cups spinach
- 1 cup cherry tomatoes, sliced in halves
- 1/4 cup feta cheese
- 2 tsp white wine vinegar
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp pepper
Cook orzo according to instructions on box. Drain, and then toss into a bowl with the spinach. Mix thoroughly until the spinach starts to wilt slightly.
Add cherry tomatoes, feta cheese, salt and pepper. Toss together. Add white wine vinegar and mix together. Serve immediately.
Seriously, it's that simple. This is not great the second day, so having leftovers isn't ideal. But this is so tasty, I doubt you'll have much left over. This is great for a summer picnic or to accompany heavier main dishes.
