This salad combines the summer taste of tomatoes, peppers and basil in a lemony dressing with rice-shaped pasta.



Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the salt and orzo. Bring back to a boil and cook 6 to 7 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water.

In a small bowl combine the lemon juice, olive oil, capers, salt and pepper; set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine orzo, tomatoes, yellow pepper, pine nuts, olives, green onions and basil (or parsley). Stir in the dressing, then crumble in the feta and add the lemon zest.

Optional: You may add 1 cup garbanzo beans for extra protein.
