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. Kiwi Summer Salad 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.
This recipe makes a healthy and delicious addition to your meal planning for the week.
Kiwi Summer Salad
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.
