Need a summer potluck idea? I've got your back!

Ever since visiting Marché Adonis in Montreal recently, I'm marinating in Mediterranean flavors. Today, I made this delicious orzo salad with tomatoes, slivered onion, minced garlic, black and green olives, feta cheese, fresh parsley, and a lemony vinaigrette.. It's an easy recipe that would be perfect for your summer picnics, potlucks, and barbecues. (You're welcome.)

Greek-Style Orzo Salad

1 lb. box orzo, cooked according to instructions, drained and cooled
about 8 Campari tomatoes, diced
half a large red onion, slivered
4 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
approx. 36 marinated olives, pitted and chopped
1 1/2 cups feta cheese, small dice or crumbled
1/2 bunch parsley, roughly chopped
juice of two lemons
1/4 to 1/2 cup olive oil
drizzle of honey (or big pinch of sugar)
1 teaspoon dried oregano
salt and pepper, to taste

Combine and chill until serving.
