Yield
4 servings (serving size: 1 1/4 cups salad and about 1 tablespoon cheese)

Make a colorful dinner salad inspired by the Mediterranean in less than 30 minutes. Use part of the artichoke marinade in the vinaigrette to boost flavor and save time.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cook the orzo according to package directions, omitting salt and fat. Drain; rinse with cold water. Combine orzo, spinach, and next 5 ingredients (through salt) in a large bowl.

Step 2

Drain artichokes, reserving marinade. Coarsely chop artichokes, and add artichokes, reserved marinade, and 1/2 cup feta cheese to orzo mixture, tossing gently to coat. Sprinkle each serving with remaining feta cheese.

First made this salad last summer and it was such a crowd pleaser that we have started making it for bigger gatherings. I always get rave reviews and make it just like the recipe says.

I used canned artichokes with allrecipes.com easy marinated artichoke recipes using mix of fresh herbs. so I could control fat etc. Was excellent and easy, look forward to leftovers.

Super delicious! I've made this recipe a few times now. One time I added chickpeas to the mix for a complete meal. It's a keeper.

Quick & easy to whip together. I served it with toasted french bread & sauteed yellow squash. I used 1 cup fresh tomato intead of sundried. I agree with another reviewer that it would've been good even with less orzo than was called for. Leftovers were good for lunch.

I have been making this for years. Also add sweet red peppers and cherry tomatoes from the yard, a drizzle of olive oil and the best salad ever.

I have made this twice now. I love this salad. It is so refreshing and the flavors all go well together. I eat it as a meal by itself for lunch and with dinner you can add grilled or rotisserie chicken. Definately a favorite!
