Lemon, dill and cucumbers are the stars of this refreshing chilled orzo salad. Crumbled feta cheese and a slight hint of honey complement the fresh tastes of summer in this recipe.
For your next potluck or picnic, give it a try. It makes a great side and it’s easy to make ahead. And when I say easy, I mean EASY!!! If you can boil water and chop veggies, you’ve got it mastered.
TIP: Play around with the proportion of orzo to vegetables to get your preferred ratio. I recommend a lot of veggies to orzo.
