Minted Orzo and Zucchini Salad

Serves 4 to 6
Time 2 hr 40 min
Make sure to let this salad chill for a few hours before serving. Over time, the orzo, tomatoes and zucchini will become infused with the flavors of mint, garlic and Kalamata olives. Broiling the zucchini is easy, but it's equally delicious grilled or served raw.

Method

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add orzo and cook until al dente, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain well, rinse in cold water and drain again.

Meanwhile, arrange a rack about 6 inches from the heating element and preheat broiler.

Brush zucchini with 1 tablespoon of the oil and arrange on a baking sheet.

Broil, flipping halfway through, until tender and deep golden brown, 6 to 8 minutes. Set aside to let cool and then roughly chop and transfer to a large bowl.

Add remaining 2 tablespoons oil, orzo, lemon juice, mint, garlic, feta, olives, tomatoes and black pepper and gently toss to combine.

Cover and chill for at least 2 hours, until flavors blend.
