Orzo, Chicken and Strawberry Salad

Ingredients

  • 60 mL (1/4 cup) extra-virgin olive oil
  • 30 mL (2 tbsp) lemon juice
  • 5 mL (1 tsp) Meaux or Dijon mustard
  • 5 mL (1 tsp) minced shallot
  • 2 mL (1/2 tsp) sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 375 mL (1 1/2 cups) dry orzo pasta
  • 500 mL (2 cups) diced, cooked chicken
  • 500 mL (2 cups) halved fresh strawberries
  • 125 mL (1/2 cup) coarsely chopped walnuts
  • 2 handfuls arugula leaves
  • 60 mL (1/4 cup) chopped fresh mint
  • 60 mL (1/4 cup) minced red onion
  • 250 mL (1 cup) Saputo Feta cheese, crumbled

Directions

  1. In a small bowl or a jar fitted with a lid, combine the olive oil, lemon juice, mustard, and shallot. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  2. Cook the orzo according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Drain, then transfer to a large serving bowl. Add the dressing and toss to combine. Let the pasta cool to room temperature, tossing from time to time, about 20 minutes. (The pasta can be made in advance and refrigerated in an airtight container.) Just before serving, add the chicken, strawberries, walnuts, arugula, mint and red onion. Garnish with crumbled Saputo Feta cheese and serve.
