Greek Orzo Salad is the perfect potluck, picnic or barbecue salad! Tender orzo pasta is tossed with fresh spinach, tomatoes, bell peppers, onion, olives, feta and drizzled with greek dressing.
At the request of my daughter, today I’m sharing with your the best orzo greek salad recipe!
As you nmay remember, Haileigh works at a local market that has a deli counter with a plethora of picnic salads. In fact, this macaroni salad was inspired by theirs. With that said, this greek orzo salad with spinach is H’s favorite and she has it for lunch on the weekends when she works on the regular. With fresh veggies like tomatoes, peppers, onions with brine-y olives and salty feta with the brightness of fresh herbs, it’s no wonder she loves it so much.
Because this salad is phenomenal and perfect with grilled chicken or fish!
Here is what you’ll need: 1 pound dried orzo pasta, sea salt, 1 pint cherry tomatoes, bell peppers, red onion, spinach, kalamata olives, feta cheese, fresh parsley, dill and greek dressing.
First, bring a large pot of water to boil. Once boiling, stir in kosher salt and add in pasta. Next, follow package directions for cooking times, then drain and rinse under cold water.
Meanwhile, prep the vegetables, herbs and crumble the feta cheese.
Next, in a large mixing bowl, add the pasta, tomatoes, peppers, onions, kalamata olives, feta cheese, spinach and fresh parsley and dill, tossing to combine. Then drizzle with some of the greek dressing, toss again and then cover with plastic wrap or a lid and refrigerate.
Right before serving, drizzle with more of the dressing, taste-test and season with salt and pepper.
This orzo salad is so fresh and flavorful AND simple! It’s great for feeding a crowd or meal prep!
