Recipe Ingredients for Holly's Orzo Salad

75 grams Feta Cheese
16 oz Orzo Dry
4 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
20 small Olives, Ripe, Canned (Small-extra Large)
24 grams Capers
14 1/5 grams Wine, Table, White
12 serving Lemon Juice
0.5 cup Frozen Sweet Peas
26 g Thick Sliced Bacon
0.5 small Onions
0.5 serving Granulated Garlic

Recipe Directions for Holly's Orzo Salad

  1. Boil orzo in water until cooked, approximately 10 mins. Drain. While orzo is cooking, take 2 thick slices of bacon, cut off most of the fat and discard it. Dice the meat nad remaining bacon fat. Fry until cooked to doneness you like. Drain the bacon.

  2. When orzo is drained and cooled a little, add all of the other ingredients to it and mix well. Adjust lemon juice (I used somewhere between 1/4 and 1/3 of a cup total of lemon juice--not sure, since I didn't measure it) and spices to taste.

  3. Serve room temperature. Refrigerate leftovers.
