More beach recipes! I served up this one with grilled chicken and the cilantro garlic yogurt sauce. It was a greek-ish inspired meal…of sorts.
Another non-recipe recipe here. The BF really loves tomato-cucumber salad, I wanted a pasta salad and love orzo and ta-da! A side dish!
I hope you like it as much as we did :)
1 large cucumber, diced
3-4 medium roma tomatoes, diced
1 small red onion, diced
1/2 cup orzo, uncooked
1-2 tbsp olive oil
1-2tsp balsamic vinaigrette
Salt and pepper to taste
Boil a salted pot of water for the orzo. Cook the orzo until al dente. Drain, but do not rinse when done. Drizzle a tablespoon of olive oil and stir to coat all the pasta. Set aside to cool a bit.
While your orzo is cooking, combine the cucumber, tomatoes, onion, olive oil and balsamic in a bowl. Salt and pepper everything to taste. Put the bowl in the fridge while your pasta cooks and then cools for a bit.
Once everything has cooled a bit, combine in one bowl, mix up and serve! Taste it first though – you might want more salt or pepper!
