orzo summer veggie salad with lemon dijon dressing

Happy Sunday!

This week has been a whirlwind. Work was super busy, weddings all over the place, sister was in town, and OH YEAH I'm moving into a new house this week. 

My move in date was actually yesterday...but that didn't happen. Moving is a gradual process....right?

Anyway, we all know how it is when we get busy and have a lot going on, sometimes working out and eating healthy goes on the back burner. I've kind of had that sitting on the back burner for a little bit too long now to be honest. BUTTT what I'm about to show you is like the yummiest salad packed full of veggies, plus doesn't take too long. Orzo Summer Veggie Salad with a Lemon Dijon Dressing. Gawd yes please. 

Are you drooling yet?



For the salad:

-one diced tomato
-2 diced small cucumbers, or half of a large one
-four diced baby zucchini (are those not adorable? trader joes)
-handful crumbled feta
-2-3 sliced hearts of palm
-handful sliced kalamata olives
-3/4 cup cooked orzo
-mixed greens (not pictured)

For the dressing:

-juice of one lemon
-2 tblsp olive oil
-1/2 tsp dijon mustard
-dash salt

Cook the orzo according to the package instructions. While that's cooking, mix everything else together in a bowl and top with the dressing.

Add the orzo and mix again.

This salad is especially nice when the weather is nice. If so, I recommend eating outside. Pretty weather and fresh ingredients go together so nicely don't you think?

Next step: join barre studio again. Has anyone ever tried class pass? 

I've really been getting back into Tedeschi Trucks Band (not that I ever got out of it) but I've had them on repeat for days now. Susan is Queen. Listen here.
