Orzo and Zucchini Salad

Ingredients

  • 1 cup orzo
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil, divided
  • 2 zucchinis, quartered lengthwise and thinly sliced
  • coarse salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup torn fresh basil
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar, or to taste
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped

 

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook orzo in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, about 11 minutes. Drain and spread onto a rimmed baking sheet to cool completely.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir zucchini and garlic in the hot oil until slightly tender, 4 to 6 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Mix orzo, zucchini mixture, basil, vinegar, and remaining 1 teaspoon olive oil in a bowl; season with salt and pepper. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate to blend flavors, 1 hour to 1 day. Bring to room temperature before serving.
