8 06 2009

This is PERFECT for summer and SOOO yummy.  I made this for a second time last night to eat with some grilled chicken.  Make it and use it all week or bring to a party, everyone will love you. 


6 oz. uncooked orzo pasta (rice shaped)

3/4 teaspoon grated lemon peel

1/3 c lemon juice

1 Tbsp olive oil

1 Tbsp Dijon mustard

4 tsp honey

1 medium cucumber, seeded, chopped

2 plum tomatoes, chopped

1/2 c red onion, chopped -i used white

12 medium pitted ripe olives, halved or just used a jar of sliced

1/4 c crumbled low fat feta cheese

1) Cook orzo to desired doneness, rinse with cold water, drain and set in large bowl

2) In small bowl combine lemon zest, lemon juice, oil, and honey and beat with wire wisk, set aside as dressing

3) Combine orzo, cucumbers, tomatoes, onions, olives together and pour dressing over top and mix well.  Sprinkle with feta cheese

I hope you enjoy this!  I will be posting a high protein banana bread later this week after I cook it myself.  Stay healthy and be happy!
