1 lb orzo pasta
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup crumbled feta cheese
3/4 cup dried cranberries, chopped
10 or more fresh basil leaves, chopped
4 tablespoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
*Optional: chopped grilled chicken or turkey pepperoni (perfect to make this more of a filling meal instead of a side)
Boil orzo according to the package.
I like my pasta salad really cold, so I suggest refrigerating for at least an hour before serving.
For a quick fix, put it in the freezer for 30 minutes.
