1 1/2 cups uncooked orzo
1/4 cup olives, chopped
1/4 cup red onion, finely chopped
1 red bell pepper, finely chopped
1 green bell pepper, finely chopped
1 yellow bell pepper, finely chopped
1 tablespoon lemon zest
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
Add the orzo to a pot of boiling water and boil until tender - about 10 minutes. While the orzo is boiling chop all of the vegetables.
I find chopping the vegetables mildly therapeutic. Put the chopped veggies into a large bowl. Whisk the lemon juice, lemon zest, honey, garlic, salt, pepper and olive oil in a small bowl.
Drain the cooked orzo and add it to the bowl with the vegetables. Pour the dressing over the salad and gently stir. This is a light and refreshing salad that is perfect for BBQ's!
