How to make it

  • Cook the Orzo according to package.
  • If you use whole-wheat orzo, it's healthier.
  • While the pasta is cooking, clean and prepare all the veggies and place in a large bowl with the cooked shrimp.
  • Note:
  • you may want to blanch the broccoli if you don’t like it raw.
  • When the water boils for the pasta, place the cut up broccoli in the water for about 1 minute.
  • Next, strain out into a colander.
  • Cook the pasta in the same water the broccoli was in.
  • It adds to the flavor of the finished dish.
  • Put honey, vinegars, oil, garlic cloves, basil leaves, yogurt, spinach, water and a pinch of salt and pepper into the blender.
  • Blend on high to and make the dressing.
  • When the orzo is finished, run the pasta under cold water to stop the cooking.
  • Add the cooked cold pasta to the bowl with the veggies and shrimp. Pour the dressing on top and mix well.
  • Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate for a few hours until ready to serve.

    I haven't seen whole wheat orzo in our area yet, the selection is getting bigger all the time though. Sounds like a good salad.
