We saw the new Batman movie Dark Knight last night. We went to a 6:50 show and got home really late and we hadn't eaten yet. We already had meat marinading all day so we went ahead with our grill plan. We grilled some steak and chicken. I made a cold orzo salad to go with it. We also had a green salad with our variety of salad dressings. I think we have almost 10 different dressings in our fridge :(
half a box of orzo
1 cucumber peeled and sliced thinly
crumbled feta cheese
pine nuts, toasted
Boil the pasta and drain the water
Toss pasta into a large bowl
Toast pine nuts in a dry skillet on top of the stove, then add to bowl
Peel and slice the cucumber into thin slices. I then cut my round slices in half and tossed them into the bowl.
Sprinkle in feta cheese as much as you prefer.
Add your vinaigrette and chill the salad for a few hours.
Stir the ingredients together well and taste
Add more dressing if needed. The pasta tends to soak up a lot of dressing while it sits in the fridge.
