Tabbouleh is popular throughout the Middle East and Mediterranean, and is usually a combination of cooked bulgur, chopped parsley and green onion. In a moment of experimentation, I substituted cooked orzo pasta for the bulgur and came up with a delicious summer side salad.
Serve your Orzo Tabbouleh as an accompaniment to Mediterranean Lamb Kebabs, or on its own as a flavorful, light lunch or dinner.
Add remaining ingredients to the orzo, toss gently and chill until ready to serve. The salad can be made 2 to 3 hours before serving.
Makes 6 side-dish servings.
