Instructions
  • Add 1 container of Pacific Foods Low Sodium Vegetable Broth to a large pot with 6 cups of water. Bring to a boil.
  • Pour orzo into the boiling liquid and stir. Allow orzo to cook in the boiling water for 7-9 minutes stirring occasionally to make sure the orzo doesn't stick to the bottom of the pan.
  • Remove the pan from heat, drain liquid from the orzo and place the orzo back in the pan or a large mixing bowl.
  • Drizzle the orzo with a little olive oil and mix to prevent sticking while it cools.
  • While the orzo cools chop the cucumber, quarter the cherry tomatoes, half the olives, crumble or cube the feta and chop the herbs.
  • Once the orzo is almost cooled pour in the olive oil, lemon juice, and red wine vinegar and mix.
  • Mix in the cucumber, tomatoes, olives, feta, herbs and lemon zest.
  • Enjoy the salad immediately or chill in the fridge before eating.
  • Store in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to one week.
