Kiwi Summer Salad

We lived in New Zealand for a time and my mother-in-law, who is still there and is a very good cook, made lots of delicious salads for us. This is one of them. The flavours of beets, mint, peas, orzo and feta combined with a honey lemon vinaigrette is so uniquely refreshing and delicious.


1 cup orzo pasta

1 cup frozen peas

2 Tbsp olive oil

2 Tbsp lemon juice(freshly squeezed is best)

1 Tbsp liquid honey

1 tsp salt

1/4 cup chopped mint or parsley

410g can of beets, drained

100 g feta, crumbled

1 small red onion, sliced thin


Cook orzo as per package instructions. Drain well and place in bowl. Cook peas; drain and set aside to cool.

Mix olive oil, lemon juice, honey, mint and salt. Toss through the orzo pasta. Refrigerate for 10 minutes. Just before serving, stir in the drained beets, peas, feta and red onion.

Serves 4
