Mediterranean Orzo Salad with Butter Crisped Garbanzo Beans
It is interesting to watch food trends. Years ago, summer was all about pasta salads. I seldom see it on menus anyone more. It is such a great side dish for barbeques or family gatherings. It can be made ahead and served cold with no worries!
I say it is time to bring this classic dish back, with a modern twist of course! I decided to use popular Mediterranean flavors, orzo pasta and a creamy feta cheese dressing to revive this classic. I also wanted to create a salad were the ingredients stayed crunchy and can be made ahead. I accomplished this by preparing this delicious side dish in a different way. How did I do it? Well, I guess you will have to read the recipe to find out my secrets!
