Ingredients

8 oz
orzo pasta, uncooked
sea salt
2 pt
mighty 'mato sweet million red cherry tomatoes
1/4 c
olive oil
8 oz
feta cheese
1 large
cucumber, peeled and chopped
2
green onions, thinly sliced
2 Tbsp
minced fresh oregano
juice from 1 lemon
black pepper, to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

1
• Bring a large pot of well salted water to a rolling boil. Add the orzo, stirring it so that it doesn't stick to the bottom of the pan. Cook, uncovered, at a high boil until al dente, cooked through but still a bit firm. Drain the pasta (it helps to use a fine mesh sieve for this as the small orzo might pass through holes in a colander), and rinse with cold water to stop the pasta from cooking further.
2
• Toss the pasta with the olive oil in a large bowl. At this point you can make ahead and chill until you are ready to serve (or transport to a party). Toss with the rest of the ingredients, the tomatoes, feta cheese, cucumber, green onions, oregano, lemon juice, and black pepper. The feta is salty so you shouldn't need to add more salt.
