187: Lemony Orzo-Veggie Salad with Chicken

One Friday, I knew there wouldn’t be enough time for me and Alex to go home and eat before we had to be at a game. I decided to make Lemony Orzo-Veggie Salad with Chicken since it seemed like a good, light, take-along meal for hot weather.

I was rushed when I made this. I eyeballed the amount of lemon zest that I put in the dressing, and I think that I actually just mixed all of the ingredients together, without making the dressing first. I omitted dill and feta.

I enjoyed this. We were a little rushed when we ate this too, so I’m trying to remember specifics about it. It was refreshing, and is actually one of those rare pasta salads, since it has no mayo or dairy in it. I wish I could remember just how lemony it was. It didn’t seem particularly vegetable-heavy, but then again, it was a pasta salad. I’m not sure that the chicken added much to it for me.

I would definitely try this again. It was pretty good on its own, and it has room for adaptation and improvement as well.
