Broccoli Rabe & Orzo Salad
If broccoli rabe is hard to find in your local store, substitute any dark, leafy green. Mustard or dandelions would be particularly nice, as a slightly bitter green is exactly what the tangy lemon and salty feta want to create a complete flavor profile to top the simple orzo.
1/2 cup orzo
1 bunch broccoli rabe, trimmed and chopped
2 Tbsp. olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp. chopped fresh oregano
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
