Mediterranean Asparagus Orzo Salad
- Boil a large pot of water and add the orzo. Cook according to the instructions on the box.
- In a large skillet, heat the olive oil then saute the sliced onions and carrots for 2-3 minutes or until the onions are turning translucent. Toss in the asparagus and tomatoes and cook until the tomatoes are losing their moisture and the asparagus cuts easily when pressed – about 5-6 minutes. Stir constantly.
- Add the cooked orzo to the skillet and stir to combine the veggies together. Add the lemon juice and stir completely. Sprinkle on a touch of salt and pepper.
- If you are using mozzarella, wait until the orzo has cooled completely before adding it. This side can be served hot or cold! Enjoy!
