Directions

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cook the orzo until tender. Drain, rinse under cold water, drain again and transfer to a large bowl. Add the tomatoes, feta, 1/4 cup oil, dill, cucumbers, onions, lemon zest and juice, and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper.

Sprinkle the shrimp with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp to the skillet and cook, stirring, until the shrimp are no longer pink, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and sprinkle the shrimp with a little lemon juice. Add the shrimp to the orzo and toss. Taste the salad and season with more salt and pepper if desired.

    This was an excellent salad, I used my wife as a judge, she loved it! Now that's saying a lot because she enjoyed the salad even though I used the feta cheese, which she doesn't care a great deal for but I love it. I had to use fresh basil in place of dill but I stayed true to the rest of the recipe.
    I also like that the Orzo was easy to prepare. Plus my wife kept commenting on how aestihetically pleasing this dish look. Now that's a home run because I have never made a good looking salad in life. All in all its a 5 star keeper.

    This was so easy and very good. You could add sun dried tomatoes or change it up for a spicy recipe also. We get fresh shrimps from the gulf here in Mississippi and this was so good!
