Why I Love This Recipe

This is a dead simple Orzo Salad, done a little different than the traditional Greek Style. It's geared toward the sweeter end but still fantastic!


Ingredients You'll Need

1/2 Pound Whole Wheat Orzo
1 Pint Picked Mint
1 Quart Spinach
1/4 Cup Almonds
2 Clementines Juiced (or Orange)
1/2 Cup Red Onions
1/2 Cup Carrots
1/2 Cup Sundried Tomatoes or Cherry Tomatoes
!/4 Slivered Almonds
1 Cup Packed Spinach
2 Clementines Zested (or Orange)
Feta (Optional)


Directions

Cook the Orzo is boiling salted water for allotted time on package until al dente. Cool in ice water to prevent from over-cooking.


Blanch Spinach and Mint for 1 minute. Transfer to a blender with Orange Juice and Almonds and blend.


Cut Red Onions into Medium Dice.


Cut Carrots in half and then slice in 1/4 inch pieces.
