Mom's Orzo Salad | Easy Mediterranean Diet Recipes




Mediterranean diet lovers? This recipe’s for you! My mom and I teamed up this week! She made this delicious orzo salad with mint, olives and garbanzo beans(originally by Trisha Yearwood)And I topped it with the Summertime Soufiko. The result was a perfectly balanced dish from Greece. Save this recipe for summer- it’s served cold and gets better the next day.
