Orzo Salad with Watermelon & Feta

This refreshingly different take on pasta salad gets its fun flavors from juicy watermelon and tangy feta cheese. 

Prep Time:  10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Yield: 6 Servings


  • 1 cup orzo pasta
  • 2 cups seedless watermelon – medium diced
  • ½ cup light feta cheese – crumbled
  • 1 TB good quality extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ cup fresh basil – thinly sliced


Fill a large saucepan ¾ full with salted water and bring to a boil. Stir in orzo, return to boil, and cook for 8-10 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water. Allow to drain completely. Toss orzo with remaining ingredients, seasoning with salt and several grinds of black pepper.
