Orzo Salad with Chicken, Bell Peppers, & Olives
This orzo salad with shredded chicken, bell peppers, olives, and a wholegrain mustard dressing is such a wonderful lunch recipe! It’s so fresh and has a wonderful crunch from the bell peppers. It's a great recipe to take to a potluck or on a picnic as it travels well.
This dish has awesome Mediterranean flavors - the tangy olives really take it over the top. Plus the whole grain mustard dressing is phenomenal. This salad reheats well and the recipe makes 6 servings, so it's a perfect for making on the weekend and taking to work all week.
It's so important to have dishes like this that can be pulled together quickly on a weeknight for dinner. I know sometimes I come home so tired I don't really want to think about making a time-consuming recipe and then doing the dishes (I’m guessing you feel the same way sometimes) - it's so tempting to just order delivery. That’s why recipes like this - ready in 25 minutes + full of flavor - are essential to have in your arsenal.
