Ingredients

Dressing

  • 2 tablespoon vinegar, red wine
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon basil, dried
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper, ground
  • 4 tablespoon olive oil

Salad

  • 3/4 cup orzo, dry
  • 2 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 6 stalk green onion
  • 2 cup spinach
  • 3 ounce feta cheese crumbles
  • 1/2 cup almonds, sliced

Serve With

  • 4 medium tangerine (mandarin orange)

Instructions

  • Combine vinegar, minced garlic, basil, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Whisk to combine while slowly adding olive oil.
  • Cook orzo in salted water according to package instructions.
  • Meanwhile, halve tomatoes, slice green onions, and roughly chop spinach; place in a large bowl.
