Orzo Salad

Orzo Salad

This can be made with any mixture of vegetables.   Unfortunately I only had broccoli and green onions but it seemed to do the trick.

            green onions, chopped
            broccoli florets
             slivered almonds
            1 cup Orzo

            1/3 cup lemon juice
            1/3 cup olive oil
            1 small garlic clove, minced (optional)
            salt & pepper

Add Orzo to boiling, salted water.  Cook 5-7 min.  Rinse with cool water.
Cut broccoli and green onions.  Add all ingredients together
For the dressing, add the olive oil to the lemon juice, whisk in grated garlic, salt and pepper.
