Orzo Salad with Spanish Olives

I love pasta especially cold pasta salads and that’s why I decided to prepare  a simple salad that i can use my marinade from my grilled vegetables in order to make things easier. Start the Orzo Salad with 6 oz orzo, which is pasta that kind of looks like rice. It’s a great little cut for side dishes! Cook the orzo in boiling water until al dente, then drain and set aside to cool off for a bit. Add your marinate and Spanish Olives, Sauteed Green Beans, and grape tomatoes and done!


1 6 oz bag orzo

2 Spoons Spanish Olives

Grape Tomatoes

1/4 Green Beans-sautee in olive oil for 5 minutes

1 cup Marinade
