Orzo Salad with Watermelon
Makes 6 servings
1 cup uncooked orzo
2 cup watermelon, seedless, diced
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese, French, Hungarian or Greek varieties
1 Tbsp olive oil, extra virgin
1/2 cup basil, fresh, thinly sliced
1/8 tsp black pepper, freshly ground, or to taste
1 tsp table salt, or to taste
Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil. Stir in orzo and return to a boil; cook until done, about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain orzo and rinse under cold water; allow to drain completely.
Once orzo is cool, toss with remaining ingredients in a medium serving bowl. Yields about 3/4 cup per serving.
