Roasted Vegetable Orzo Salad

6 Oct

This is kind of a dish that I call, Summer Don’t Go- Roasted Vegetable Orzo Salad.

If you live in a year-round sunny and warm region, you’d love this, and I envy you. If you don’t live in a year-round sunny and warm region, you can still try it. If you want to wait for another 10 months to make this dish, I don’t blame you.

This salad is just perfect for a nice picnic outside, or a BBQ. It’s vegetarian friendly, too!


1 lb orzo pasta

1 yellow squash, diced

1 bell pepper, diced

1 small eggplant, diced

1 zucchini, diced

1 small red onion, diced

4 tbs olive oil, for roasting

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil, for dressing

lemon juice from one lemon

1 tbs Herbs de Provence

salt & pepper

everyday seasoning

4. Secret ingredient to brighten a dish up-

5. Once the vegetables and orzo are both done, add in the lemon juice and extra virgin olive oil and mix.

Simple, right? Ready to go outside for the barbecue!
