I made this dinner because I was craving a greek salad. It was during a warm night in last August and I spent the majority of the afternoon at work dreaming about it. I combined the veggies in my fridge with a little feta and had a great side for my grilled shrimp.
The shrimp came from Whole Foods and were marinated in a lemon thyme concoction (I think) according to the sign. All I did was throw them on the indoor grill until they were pink. Yum!

1 med. Red Onion
1 lg. Cucumber
Orzo Pasta, cooked and drained
Feta Cheese, crumbled
Red Wine Vinegar
Salt and Pepper
This was so long ago I can't remember what my measurements were on the dressing, but I know it was tangy with just a touch of sweet, light and refreshing. It was easy to chop the veggies while the pasta was cooking then toss them all together with an eyeballed mix of dressing ingredients. I may have gone overboard with the dressing because the salad was a little juicy. I loved the little bit of sweetness the pear provided and the way the orzo offset all the veggies. This meal was perfect for a warm night.
