Orzo or Risoni is pasta shaped like rice. It works well in soups but i also love making salads out of it. This is an easy refreshing salad. 

What You'll Need - Serves 4-6 

  • 1 Cup Orzo ( Risoni or Rosmarino pasta) 
  • 1/2 Red, Yellow and Red Pepper 
  • 1/2 Cucumber 
  • 2 Avocados 
  • 1 Cup Cherry Tomatoes 
  • 1 Bunch Parsley
  • 1 Bunch Coriander 
  • 1/2 Cup Olive Oil
  • 1 Lemon 
  • 1 Tbs Honey
  • 1/2 Tsp Mustard 
  • Salt & Pepper 

Let's Get Cooking - 25 Minutes 

  • Bring water to the boil and season with salt in a pot. Place the pasta in the pot and cook for about 8-10 minutes - until cooked. Once cooked drain using a large sieve ( colander might not work as the pasta is small) 
  • While the pasta is dice your peppers and avocados into cubes. 
  • Quarter the cherry tomatoes. 
  • Cut the cucumber in half and remove the seeds in the center with a spoon. Dice the cucumber into cubes. 
  • Finely dice the coriander and parsley. 
  • To make the salad dressing, place the olive oil, juice of 1 lemon, Honey, Mustard, 1/4 of your coriander and parsley, Salt and Pepper and mix well (Making the dressing in a jar is much easier, then you can shake to combine the ingredients) 
  • To the cooked pasta, add the diced vegetables. Add the remainder of the herbs and combine
  • pour the salad dressing onto the pasta and mix well. 
  • Serve with grilled chicken for a light meal or add tuna chunks.
