It sounded good and so did the reviews, but I would not make it again. Not enough flavour. Needed more olive oil, more lemon juice, and something to get my attention - something spicy for example.
Orzo Salad with Chickpeas & Artichoke Hearts
Quintessential Greek flavors—feta, lemon and dill—combine perfectly in this hearty salad. To complete the Mediterranean mood, try pairing it with a Greek Retsina or a Portuguese Vinho Verde.
8 Reviews for Orzo Salad with Chickpeas & Artichoke Hearts
I doubled it, used the cherry tomato idea that another reviewer wrote, i didnt add the feta cheese as i dont eat dairy and this turned out wonderful and full of flavour. All the men in my house even loved it.
Nice job and thanks for the great views.
Doubled the recipe to make for lunch all week. Excellent! If doing this, I highly recommend using grape tomatoes and just adding them to the salad as you prepare it for lunch every day, as tomatoes can lose their flavor in the fridge.
This salad makes a fabulous weekday lunch - it's fairly inexpensive, and the fresh flavors just get better as they have time to meld in the fridge. I'm making it again this week without the orzo (and less olive oil since the salad won't need so much without it) and adding some chicken for extra protein. I respectfully disagree with the reviewer who said the flavors were overwhelming, and I highly recommend anyone who loves artichokes and chickpeas give this salad a try!
We love Greek food so I thought I would try this salad. It is healthy and has a lot of flavors but I can't say they meld well. The tangy lemon and herbs are the over-riding flavors and overwhelm the salad. I followed the recipe exactly. My husband and I were surprised by the rave reviews. I would not make this again.
