Orzo & Arugula Salad with Pesto Balsamic Vinaigrette

Orzo & Arugula Salad with Pesto Balsamic Vinaigrette

Our tiny pastina, orzo, makes a mighty appearance in this cold salad of savory greens, juicy grape tomatoes and a tasty homemade dressing. Take it on a picnic, or simply enjoy as a light lunch. Either way, you have to try this.

INGREDIENTS

DIRECTIONS

  1. Whisk all the ingredients together vigorously in a mixing bowl while slowly adding the olive oil. Adjust to taste. Set aside in a container.
  2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add salt and the pasta. Cook until very al dente.
  3. Drain the pasta and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking and to wash away some of the starches. (note: only rinse your pasta if it is intended for a cold pasta salad dish). Allow the pasta to cool.
  4. Toss the cold pasta, tomatoes, onion, and arugula with the pesto dressing. Mix to coat evenly.
  5. Serve cold.
