After traveling last weekend we returned home to an almost empty fridge. After traveling, I also often crave simple, fresh, home cooked food (is that just me, or do you agree?), and yet the last thing I want is a big production.
A quick stop at the store for swordfish solved the protein quotient of our meal.
Our friends often serve orzo salad, so I took inspiration from them. It’s a perfect receptical for using up random ingredients – pick a cheese, a veggie or two, and an herb. Chop, and mix with orzo.
In the depths of the fridge I found: half a container of feta, half an orange pepper, and a piece of a white onion. My little sink-side basil plant provided the final touch.
Add cooked orzo, toss with simple vinaigrette, and voila.
