Orzo Salad

Easy and flavorful orzo salad with kalamata olives and garlic.


So the other day I recorded a vlog, and in it I shared my orzo salad that I was having for lunch. I made it the night before and was just “throwing it together” so I didn’t photograph it properly…but I’ve now updated it for you!

  1. For some reason I’ve had a real craving for olives, probably because there hard to find in Central America, but all this recipe does is cement how much I want them now! haha Looks great, and very delicious :)

  2. This recipe is so simple but delicious, I’m sure. I don’t use orzo nearly enough and I love it. Olives, feta, and herbs make it a great salad!
