Orzo Salad

This is a great pasta salad for a quick dinner or sharing at a gathering. It's very simple, light, but flavorful. The recipe makes enough for a crowd so I cut it in half if I'm just making it for my fam.

1 box Orzo pasta
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 generous cloves garlic, grated
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
juice of 1 lemon
1 cucumber, quartered and thin sliced
2 plum/roma tomatoes, diced
salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp dried dill
1/4 cup crumbled feta

Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and put into a large bowl with olive oil, onion and garlic.

Once pasta cools, add remaining ingredients and stir well. Let stand 15 minutes before serving.
