Lemon Orzo Salad With Asparagus, Spinach And Feta

Emily Zito

Prep
Cook
Serves 6people
Ingredients
1
cup orzo
salt-about 1/2 tsp. for boiling water
2
cloves garlic, finely chopped
1
tsp olive oil
8
asparagus spears, cut into 1 inch pieces
1
cup packed fresh spinach
juice of 1 large lemon
1/3
cup feta cheese
salt and pepper, to taste
Directions
1.
In a medium sauce pan, bring 4 cups of water to boil. Add the salt. Stir in orzo. Cook until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain orzo and set aside.
2.
In a small sauce pan, saute garlic in olive oil. Add in asparagus pieces. Saute for 3-4 minutes. Stir in spinach. Cook until asparagus is tender and the spinach shrinks down.
3.
Put the orzo in a medium bowl and add in the vegetables. Squeeze fresh lemon juice over the orzo and vegetables. Stir. Season with salt and pepper. Taste-add more lemon juice if you wish. The lemon I used was huge, so I only needed to use one lemon. If you need more juice, go ahead.
4.
Sprinkle feta cheese over the top of the salad. Serve warm. (I also liked the salad cold.)
