Orzo Feta Salad
Updated: Mar 22, 2021
Whether you are meal prepping for lunches throughout the week or having family over for a BBQ this salad has it all; quick, easy, packed with flavor and vegetables. My son even gave it his double thumbs up approval! This is also a great lunch idea for kids and adults alike!
In this recipe, I share my own red wine vinegarette, but if you wanted to make this recipe simpler, you could use store-bought vinaigrette.
Ingredient List & Recipe
What do you need?
16 oz bag of Orzo
2 English cucumber
1 orange pepper
1 large red onion
4 small sweet peppers (you could swap for another large pepper)
1 15.2 oz can of chickpeas
1 cup of feta
Red Vinegar Vinaigrette Dressing
1/3 cup of red wine vinegar
2/3 cup of olive oil
2 freshly squeezed lemons (juice)
3 tablespoons of honey
2 teaspoons of salt
2 teaspoons of pepper
2 teaspoons of basil seasoning
1) Start by boiling and cooking the Orzo as the instructions stated on the package.
2) Time to dice up all those vegetables. I used my trusty dicer to make this quick!

3) Once all your vegetables are diced, it's time to make the vinaigrette dressing, if you are using the store-bought dressing move on to the next step. Add all ingredients from above into a separate bowl and stir.
4) Rinse and drain the chickpeas and add to the salad. Add the pasta when it is ready and stir.
5) Add Red Vinegar Vinaigrette (or 1 cup of store-bought) to the salad.
6) Add Feta then Stir & Enjoy
Tip: A few additional add-ins: marinated red peppers, diced tomatoes, artichokes, grilled chicken. You can dress up this salad or dress it down, customize how you want and your guests or family will eat it!
