Peppered Orzo Greek Salad

Serves 6 +
Prep time: 15 - 30 mins
Cooking time: 0 - 15 mins

This makes a nice change from the usual – orzo has a great texture. The Mediterranean flavours are very popular and it makes a big, colourful platter of food. The dish goes well with roast chicken, seafood, or with barbecued meats.
