Orzo Salad

Serves: 12


12 ounces orzo, prepared as directed

3 cloves garlic, minced
2 pints grape tomatoes
2 bunches scallions (if you are an onion fan - use red onions)

2 teaspoons dried oregano

1 tablespoon basil

1/2 cup fresh dill (dried can work if no fresh available)

1/4 cup fresh parsley (ditto on the dried)

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

3 tablespoons lemon juice

2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

6 ounces feta cheese

note: I never measure, but I did once for when I wrote the recipe down...but variations according to taste work just fine :)


Mix it all together in a big 'ol bowl
