Pesto Orzo Salad


This pesto orzo salad couldn't be easier to make. Vibrant cherry tomatoes, fresh cucumbers and protein packed chickpeas mingle with olives and feta cheese. Toss it all in an easy to make pesto for the simplest, most flavor packed salad EVER.

Let’s get started!

Cook your orzo according to the instructions on the packet. You want the orzo to be al dente (with a little bit of bite), which should take about 5-6 minutes.


Drain the pasta in fine mesh sieve and rinse with cool water. Transfer your orzo to a large serving bowl.


While your orzo is cooking, prepare the pesto salad dressing by blending the ingredients in a blender or food processor.


In a large bowl add the cooked orzo, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, chickpeas and black olives. Drizzle the pesto dressing over the orzo salad and toss to combine.
