Instagram Love and Greek Orzo Salad

I'm completely obsessed with Instagram.  There's never a bad moment to check out exactly what's going on in other people's lives rightthissecond.  Or let people know what you are doing (or eating) right this second.  :)

Most of this food is what I ate this weekend, but here's something I'm loving today- Greek Orzo Salad. This salad is fresh, easy, healthy, and perfectly delicious.  We're on our third batch, and still going strong!

Greek Orzo Salad 

Adapted from Taste of Home

 serves 8

1 cup uncooked orzo pasta
6 tsp olive oil, divided
1 medium red onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup minced fresh kale
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
1 1/2 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp sugar
1/8 pepper
2 large tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1 medium cucumber, peeled, seeded, and chopped
generous 1/2 crumbled feta cheese

Cook orzo according to package directions and drain.  In a serving bowl, toss orzo with 2 tsp oil.   In another bowl, combine the onion, kale, red wine vinegar, oregano, salt, sugar, pepper, and remaining oil; pour over orzo and toss to coat.  Cover and refrigerate 2-24 hours.  Just before serving, stir in tomatoes, cucumber, and cheese.

 Have a great start to your week!
