Quick and Easy Orzo Summer Salad with Lemon Dressing

Quick and Easy Orzo Summer Salad with Lemon Dressing

This recipe is part of my main ones across the summer season. This orzo salad is very quick and so easy to make, very fresh and nutritious, filled with good things. Also, it’s very versatile as you’ll be able to adapt it according to your preferences or to the season. I’ve always enjoyed pasta salad in summer as we don’t always feel like eating a lot or anything that’s gonna be warm or hot and tend to end up having a plate of raw veggies, which I’m not fond of. This salad is full of Mediterranean flavours with some herbs, zucchini, feta cheese and olives !

Today is Japanese pan-fried dumplings day! I was craving gyoza the other day and had plenty of vegetables to use up so this was the perfect occasion.
