This recipe is a cool family favorite and so easy to make.

The recipe is as follows:

I box of cooked orzo pasta ( I use Barilla.)

2 cups halved cherry tomatoes (or 2 regular tomatoes deseeded and chopped)

1/2 cup chopped purple onion

1/3 cup thinly sliced fresh basil

1 1/2  cups crumbled feta cheese (more or less per your preference)

1 cup of cooked chicken chopped 

Combine everything in a large bowl and add:

2/3 cup olive oil

6 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1 1/2 tablespoons of Dijon mustard ( I use Maille~ a French mustard)

2 teaspoons honey

salt and black pepper to taste

Bonjour,
Les beaux jours arrivent et l'envie de faire et de déguster de bonnes salades aussi ! Celle que vous nous proposez me semble très goûteuse... Dommage en ce qui me concerne que je ne puisse pas y goûter, je suis allergique au gluten ! mais mon entourage, non !!
Gros bisous
