Greek Orzo Salad With Chickpeas & Artichoke Hearts

Greek Orzo Salad With Chickpeas & Artichoke Hearts created by Izy Hossack

Quintessential Greek flavors - feta, lemon and dill - combine perfectly in this hearty salad. To complete the Mediterranean mood, try pairing it with a Greek Retsina or a Portuguese Vinho Verde. From EatingWell magazine May/June 1996, and "EatingWell Serves Two" Dietary Exchanges: 4 starch, 2 vegetable, 1 very lean meat, 1 fat (4 Carbohydrate Serving). Posted for ZWT6. NOTE: Recipe amended to indicate fresh lemon juice and optional addition of some greek seasoning for more flavor.

    This was a good recipe. It was very different from our usual salads. My family had mixed reviews on it. I might make it again but not for a while.

    Delicious! I added some fried pita chips for a little crunch! This is excellent! I used a whole bag of orzo and extra everything... and truthfully, I could have made more - because I would have liked to have some left over! I loved it! I made it with the spinach but it would have been good just the orzo on its own
