SUMMER GREEK PASTA SALAD WITH LEMON VINAIGRETTE
Feeds: 4 people        Time: 20 minutes


INGREDIENTS

for the dressing
5 tablespoons + 1 teaspoon olive oil
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons honey
2 teaspoons wholegrain mustard
a pinch of sea salt
some freshly cracked black pepper

for the salad
100g orzo pasta, cooked and cooled
(1/4) cucumber, cut into small chunks
(12) cherry tomatoes, halved
(100g) feta cheese, crumbled
(1/2) red onion, thinly chopped
(two handfuls) pitted (Kalamata) olives
fresh basil, torn
freshly cracked black pepper


INSTRUCTIONS


  1. Place all the dressing ingredients together in a clean jam jar, close the lid tightly and shake vigorously until combined.  It'll make more than you need, but it can be stored for up to a week in the fridge so you can use it with other salads!
  2. In a large bowl, toss together the salad ingredients.  Season with pepper.  Add the dressing as you serve.  Eat!

    1. Autumn may be here, but there's no reason this salad can't stick around! I'm sure it could be adapted to make a lovely warming winter salad, too, if you swapped out the cheese and vegetables for something more seasonal :) x
