Italian Orzo Salad

This is a favorite at football/soccer/baseball/lacrosse (any sporting event!) parties, and yet elegant enough to serve the girlfriends at Bunco Night 🙂

 

Pasta Salad

1 box Orzo pasta, boiled and drained

2 chicken breasts, cut into small pieces

½ stick peppered salami, chopped

30 Kalamata olives, sliced in

    1/2 length-wise

1 8.5-ounce jar sundried tomatoes

1 16.5-ounce marinated artichoke hearts, drained and chopped

¼ cup red onion , finely chopped

½ bunch fresh basil                      

½ cup pine nuts

1 8-ounce goat cheese

1 12-ounce bag of spinach leaves  (for cold version)

Dressing

¾ cup olive oil

1 ½ lemons (juice from the lemons

    squeezed into dressing)

2-3 tsp crushed garlic

2 tsp Balsamic vinegar

Salt & pepper, to taste

 

Directions:

Create Dressing in a separate container and mix well.   In a large bowl, add all the pasta salad ingredients together, tossing gently.  Add the Dressing, again, mixing into the Pasta Salad.  It’s that easy and sooo impressive!

EnJOY!
