There’s watermelon in the stores! Giant, delicious, CHEAP watermelon! While I’ve been known to cut one in half and go at it with a spoon and call it lunch, sometimes you want to spice things up a little. This salad is a light dish that’s a perfect start to a warm weather meal, especially if your eating outside!
What You’ll Need:
1 Cup Uncooked Orzo
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
2 Cups Watermelon, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
4 ounces Feta, Cut into small cubes
2 Tablespoons Mint, Sliced Thin
2 Tablespoons Basil, Sliced Thin
Cook the orzo in heavily salted boiling water until al dente, about 6-8 minutes, drain completely and immediately toss with olive oil to keep the pasta from sticking. Once the orzo is cool, toss with the remaining ingredients in a medium serving bowl and enjoy!
This salad is quick and delicious, perfect for your warm weather dinner! But, this is also a great dish to bring to the cookouts in our summer future, what a nice change of pace…not having a pasta salad with mayo in it!
