Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Cook the orzo

Bring a medium sauce pot of generously salted water to a boil. Add the orzo and cook until just tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Drain and transfer to a large bowl. Drizzle with 1 teaspoon oil and toss to coat.
While the water heats and the orzo cooks, prepare the remaining ingredients.

2

Prep the remaining ingredients

  • Rinse the white beans.
  • Cut the tomatoes in half.
  • Peel the cucumber, if desired, and trim the ends; cut the cucumber in half lengthwise, then on the diagonal into enough ¼-inch-thick slices to measure 1 cup [2 cups].
  • Cut the olives in half.
  • Peel and finely chop enough shallots to measure ¼ cup [½ cup].
  • Strip the mint leaves from the stems; if desired, tear or coarsely chop the leaves.

3

Assemble the salad

To the bowl with the orzo, add the beans, tomatoes, cucumber, olives, shallots, mint, arugula, feta, and as much red pepper vinaigrette as you like and toss to coat; season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve

Transfer the orzo salad to individual plates and serve any remaining vinaigrette on the side.
