This blog started out as a way for me to display and sell my handmade jewelry creations. I have set up shop on Etsy.com, where my shop name is "Dreamin of Beadin". The link to my Etsy store is located on the right hand side of this page. Please check me out!! If jewelry's not your thing, then check out the site anyway ~ there are plenty of talented artists selling lots of cool things there. For your reading pleasure, this blog will serve as a sneak peek into what's going on "behind the scenes" in my world. I love to cook, so there will be plenty of recipes, as well as product reviews and the occasional product giveaway (woo hoo!) I also love to take pictures of anything and everything, and I just bought a new camera, so there will be plenty of photos. And I like wine too, so things could get pretty interesting . . . Thank you for your support of me, Etsy and "all things handmade" :)

Here's the Dish: Orzo Salad

A favorite local restaurant of ours serves this yummy Orzo salad. It is sooo good that I have to order it each time I go there. Not too long ago, I was really craving this dish, so I decided to make it at home. I found a basic recipe that seemed pretty close and then tweaked it to my liking. The results were superb. You will love this for summer ~ it's so light and refreshing. Check out the recipe below:
Orzo Salad
Ingredients:
1 cup Orzo
1 cup feta cheese
1/3 cup olive oil
3 cloves freshly minced garlic (use more or less, to your liking)
3 tablespoons parsley (chopped)
3 tablespoons fresh dill (chopped)
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 tomato (diced)
Directions:
1. Cook Orzo according to package directions.
2. Drain and rinse with cold water.
3. Add feta cheese, garlic, parsley,dill and tomato*.
4. In a container shake together the oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper.
5. Pour this over the salad and toss.
6. Chill in refrigerator.
*I added cucumber as well, it's optional. You can also use green onions, I just forgot to add them.
Serves 6

I'm going to try it using rice instead of orzo. Sounds great as a light summer food fare.
