Dinner is Served

Well, I never made it to the pool yesterday because it was pretty cloudy all day long. Bummer. But, I did manage to head out to the store and grab a few ingredients for a recipe I've been wanting to try. Minted Orzo Salad with Chickpeas and Feta.

I found the recipe over at Can You Stay for Dinner? and just knew I had to try it! I like to think of it as a fancy shmancy pasta salad; perfect for a summer dinner! If you enjoy flavorful herbs and vinaigrette dressing this is a definite must for you.
I was so excited to find this because we have fresh mint and basil growing here at home right now and I got to use both!
Click on the link above for the recipe! Here are some tips from my experience making it.
  • a little less mint (original calls for ¼ cup) but don't get me wrong--the mint flavor is necessary
  • Make it for a get together or bbq. It makes a TON!
I'm off to church and then hopefully getting a workout in!
