Greek Orzo Salad

Greek Orzo Salad

Spring has sprung and it’s time to eat everything green, like this Greek Orzo Salad! Don’t get me wrong, I love winter comfort food, but it’s definitely time to get back into lighter fare for spring and summer. This orzo salad was absolutely amazing for dinner and made me forget that it’s still going to snow at least one more time this spring, because I live in Alberta.
