Ingredients

  • Zest of one lemon
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp honey
  • 1 clove of garlic minced
  • Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper to taste
  • 1 cup of uncooked orzo cooked per instructions
  • 1 cucumber peeled, seeded and finely diced
  • 1 red bell pepper seeded and finely diced
  • 1 tbsp red onion finely diced
  • 2 tbsp fresh dill chopped
  • 2 tbsp feta cheese more if desired

Instructions

  • Combine the lemon zest, lemon juice, olive oil, honey, garlic, sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste, together in a bowl. Whisk until well combined then set aside so the flavors can mingle.
  • Cook the orzo per instructions; drain and rinse with cold water.
  • Combine the orzo together with the cucumber, bell pepper, red onion, fresh dill, and the lemon vinaigrette; toss to coat evenly. Taste and season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Top with feta cheese and serve. Enjoy.
  • Side Note: If your red onion is too strong in flavor, dice it then place it in a bowl of ice water for a few minutes. It will mellow the flavor out nicely.
