Best Orzo Salad Recipe

Servings 6 Servings


  • ½ box orzo
  • Salt
  • Black pepper, ground
  • Extra virgin olive oil (evoo)
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 2 red bell pepper, roasted* and peeled, diced
  • Olives, black and/or green, chopped
  • Goat and/or feta cheese, crumbled/diced small
  • Tomatoes, chopped, optional but recommended!


  • * to roast the peppers, slice them in half, clean from the seeds, and place skin side up under the broiler (you can do this in a small toaster oven – I did it – it’s much faster). Once their skin is blackened, remove from oven and place in a bowl, cover with plastic foil and let it sweat and cool. Once cooled, the skin peels easily.
  • Cook pasta according to the instructions on the box.
  • Drain and season with salt, black pepper, and a splash of a good fruity evoo. Add all the other ingredients, and toss.
  • The Best Orzo Salad is all set to go in a bowl!
