Lemony Orzo Pasta Salad

1 lb cooked orzo pasta (al dente)

½ cup diced sundried tomatoes (dried not in oil)

1 cup fresh diced tomato

½ cup diced red onion

1 cup fresh diced veggies (zucchini, bell pepper, yellow squash, chopped spinach, etc.)

Zest and juice of three fresh lemons

1 Tbsp red wine vinegar

¼ cup shredded Parmesan cheese

¼ cup fresh chopped Parsley

¼ cup fresh chopped Basil

2 tsp fresh chopped Garlic

2 Tbsp olive oil

Salt and Pepper to taste

Chill orzo immediately after cooking. Mix together the first 5 ingredients. Toss ingredients together well.

Add the next 7 ingredients, making sure to add the oil at the very end. Season the salad with salt and pepper as needed.

Serve as is, or as a base for grilled salmon or tuna. This is also great tossed with fresh grilled or steamed shrimp. Enjoy!
