DIRECTIONS

  • Prepare salad dressing.
  • Roll the basil and mint into a cigar like roll and slice thin as you can.
  • Dice the red onion.
  • Cook the orzo until it is al dente, about 9 minutes and drain.
  • While it is still hot stir in the salad dressing, then 1/2 of the crumbled feta.
  • Next stir in the spinache, mint/basil, olives and red onions. You do not need to chop the spnache as the heat from the pasta will wilt it.
  • Let it sit for a couple of hours, or even better over night.
  • Before you serve it, stir in the remaining feta and re-adjust the salt and pepper. If it seems a little dry add some olive oil.
  • Note: Go light on the salt as the feta is salty and you will be adding feta at 2 different times.
