Mediterranean-Inspired Orzo Salad

Guys: this salad is next level kind of stuff. It's just one of those things that goes well with everything. It's also just really good by itself. We're talkin' olives, tomatoes, feta cheese, peppery arugula - I mean, what more do you need?! Oh! I know! A homemade lemony dressing with fresh rosemary and thyme!


I'm calling it Mediterranean-inspired 'cause these flavors bring back some serious memories of my cruise through the Greek islands. I wish I was there now...but alas, COVID.


This one's a good summertime staple, people! Make it tonight!

Enjoy!
