Orzo Salad

Recipe: Orzo Salad

My husband and I wanted to make a tabbouleh salad one day, but didn't have any of the necessary ingredients other than tomatoes, cucumber and lemons. After going through the pantry and the fridge, we came up with this.
4oz orzo pasta, cooked according to package directions then cooled
about 20 cherry tomatoes quartered (or equivalent slicer tomatoes, chopped)
about half a cucumber, peeled and chopped
fresh basil leaves, chopped
juice of 1 lemon
1-2 cloves of garlic
salt and pepper to taste

Put all ingredients in a large bowl and mix together. Could it be any easier??

We like to serve it with falafel, tahini sauce (tahini whisked with lemon juice and a little water), and hot sauce. Yum. You can easily stretch this meal for more people by adding hummus, pita bread, stuffed grape leaves, olives...... Now I'm hungry :)
