Greek orzo salad

Spring is finally here, and even though I absolutely love the sunshine sometimes it’s not very compatable with working at my laptop. I often sit at my desk with the curtains drawns to keep out the glare. This lunch helps to bring some summer back into my working day, even if I can’t leave my computer to go outside. Luckily, this salad is super quick to make.

Tip

I love this salad with just olive oil, and a pinch of salt, to bring out the flavours. But if you want a fancier salad dressing you could mix 1 tbsp of red wine vinegar with 3 tbsp of olive oil and a pinch of oregano.
