Mediterranean Orzo Toss

It's no secret that I love pasta. Nick's feelings on the stuff? Not as in love with it as I am. Unless we're having orzo*. Not sure what makes it so different to him, but I'm not going to question it. So, the other day, we weren't feeling a real 'dinner' type meal, so we opted for some Mediterranean flavours mixed into some orzo.

All you need to do is grab your favourite Mediterranean ingredients. I used: onion, red pepper, cucumber, chickpeas, olives (kept those separate but added them in for Nick), & feta cheese.

Chop the ingredients into bite sized pieces. Toss with the cooked pasta (I like it served cool, so if you can, make the pasta in advance and let it hang out). Then add olive oil (enough to dress it without leaving a puddle at the bottom), balsamic vinegar or acid of your choice (lemon juice, red wine vinegar, etc), a little dried oregano, and salt and pepper.

It's a perfect summer supper for those hot hot days.

*orzo is pasta, but it kinda looks like rice
