How to Make Greek Spinach Orzo Salad

Step-by-Step

  1. Cook the orzo according to package instructions for al dente.
  2. Drain and rinse pasta under cold water to cool and set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the orzo, spinach, onion, olives, and feta.
  4. Stir dressing into salad to coat well. Stir more than you think you need to as it will help to wilt the spinach a bit.
  5. Serve at room temperature or chilled. This salad will keep for a couple of days in the refrigerator but it is best consumed within 24 hours.
