Sundried Tomato Feta Orzo Salad
I like having a pasta salad with a big family or holiday meal. I get tired of the same old thing though. My mom always makes an Italian Pasta Salad, which is great, but it gets old after awhile. I have been changing things up lately and my last side dish was this Buffalo Chicken Pasta Salad which was amazing! I decided to put more of a Mediterranean spin on it with this Sundried Tomato Feta Orzo Salad and it paired wonderfully with my Pressure Cooker Shredded Italian Beef.
This yummy orzo pasta salad is studded with fresh tomatoes, crunchy cucumbers and creamy feta all mixed in with a sundried tomato pesto for an incredibly easy side dish. Add more fresh veggies like bell peppers or olives to make it your own. Either way, it is a great salad to change things up for the holiday meals this year.
