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 is heating and the orzo is cooking, prepare the remaining ingredients.

2

Prep the remaining ingredients

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

3

Assemble the orzo salad

To the bowl with the orzo, add the beans, tomatoes, cucumber, shallots, olives, mint, arugula, feta, and half the red pepper vinaigrette and toss to coat (set aside the remaining vinaigrette for serving). Season to taste with salt and pepper. 

Serve

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