Orzo Salad

Orzo Salad

6 cups water
3 cups whole wheat orzo
1 can artichoke hearts, drained and rinsed, trimmed and quartered
1 half bag Dole Baby Spinach, stems removed
a handful of pitted kalamata olives, rinsed and quartered
about 10 sundried tomatoes, chopped (hint: find them packaged in the produce section at Meijer, they are in a plain plastic package not packed in oil, so much better for you!)
1/2 pint grape tomatoes, quartered
about a half a pound of greek feta, cubed small
you could also add capers, pine nuts and cannellini beans
juice of 3 - 4 lemons
3- 4 t. Dijon Mustard
a blend of Olive and Canola Oils
salt and pepper to taste

This is a great dish for the week, make it up on Sunday and take a bowl every day, or take it to a BBQ, picnic or potluck.  It makes a huge bowl and is really easy to customize with additions or size.  We are totally diggin' this salad right now!
