Sun-dried Tomato & Feta Orzo Salad


Orzo has to be my favorite pasta shape and it is so versatile. This salad is so simple and it tastes good cold or warm. It’s great as a side dish or as a main dish with the addition of chicken.


This salad gets a lot of its flavor from cooking the orzo in chicken broth, although you could use water or vegetable broth to make it vegetarian. The sun-dried tomatoes and feta are a great combination; they give this salad a Greek influence. I’ve never tried it, but chopped katamala olives would probably make a great addition.



Sun-dried Tomato & Feta Orzo Salad:
This is not my recipe, but I’m not sure where it’s from.
Active Time: 15 to 20 minutes

  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup orzo
  • 3-4 tablespoons feta, crumbled
  • 3-4 tablespoons sun-dried tomatoes in oil, chopped
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

1. In a small saucepan, bring chicken broth to a boil. *you can also use just water or a mixture of broth and water

2. When the chicken broth has come to a boil, add orzo and cook until all the liquid is gone. Be careful towards the end of cooking to make sure it doesn’t stick to the pan; just keep stirring.

3. Before cooking the orzo or while it’s cooking, chop the sun-dried tomatoes and add to a medium-sized bowl with the feta.

4. When the orzo has finished cooking, add to the bowl with the other ingredients. Add salt and pepper to taste and mix. Serve as a side dish or add pieces of chicken for a main dish. Enjoy!
