READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by MsBindy

The title of this recipe is my attempt at calling it Orzo Delight, in Greek. Hopefully I'm not calling it something inappropriate!! This salad is a colorful orzo salad with a nice crunch. Try it; you'll be sure to enjoy!

I liked this salad but wasn't crazy about it. If I were to make it again, I would cut the dressing down, as I thought it was a tad too strong.

  5. Peel off and discard the charred skin.
  6. Chop the pepper.
  7. Combine the orzo, roasted red pepper, pistachios, green onions, olives, parsley and oregano in a large bowl.
  8. Combine all the dressing ingredients together in a small bowl and whisk together.
  9. Pour dressing over orzo mixture, tossing gently to coat.
  10. Refrigerate.
  11. Before serving, crumble 1/2 cup feta cheese over top of salad (or gently combine into salad if you prefer).
