I was so excited to find a new summer recipe to try in the latest free issue of Something Extra from Raley's/Belair grocery stores! It's perfect for hot weather and it's delicious and healthy too! I hope you get a chance to try it.
1 1/2 cups orzo pasta (about 2/3 of a 1-lb box)
2 cups cooked, cubed chicken
2 cups halved grape tomatoes
2 cups thinly sliced spinach leaves or green leaf lettuce
1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions
4 strips bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1/2 tablespoon Dijon mustard
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Cook orzo according to package directions, rinse with cold water to cool; drain. Stir together orzo, chicken, tomatoes, lettuce, onions and bacon in a large bowl. Whisk together remaining ingredients in a small bowl. Pour over salad and toss to coat. Makes 4-6 servings.
