Lemony Orzo-Veggie Salad with Chicken

This colorful orzo and chicken main dish salad is packed with an assortment of chopped fresh vegetables and tossed with a tangy lemon dressing. It's a great use for leftover or rotisserie chicken. 

Yield: 4 servings (serving size: about 1 1/4 cups)


3/4 cup uncooked orzo 

1/4 teaspoon grated lemon rind 

3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice 

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil 

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt 

1/2 teaspoon minced garlic 

1/4 teaspoon honey

1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 

1 cup shredded skinless, boneless rotisserie chicken breast 

1/2 cup diced English cucumber 

1/2 cup prechopped red bell pepper 

1/3 cup thinly sliced green onions 

1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill 

1/2 cup (2 ounces) crumbled goat cheese


1. Cook orzo according to package directions, omitting salt and fat. Drain and rinse with cold water; drain and place in a large bowl.

2. While orzo cooks, combine lemon rind and next 6 ingredients (through black pepper), stirring well with a whisk. Drizzle juice mixture over orzo; toss to coat. Add chicken and next 4 ingredients (through dill); toss gently to combine. Sprinkle with cheese.
