Orzo Salad with Radish and Fennel

on October 18, 2012

Had I come across this recipe in a cookbook I would have skipped it.  Radishes just aren’t my favorite veggie and fennel doesn’t get that much action in my kitchen.  But lucky for me I got this dish in the food swap!  It was delicious.   The combination of mint, fennel & radish was wonderful.  Thanks Eva for expanding my palette!
8 oz uncooked orzo
1 tbsp salt
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
3 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 1/2 cups diced fennel (about 1 bulb)
1/2 cup chopped radish
3 tbsp chopped fresh mint
3 tbsp minced green onions
1/2 teaspoon salt
Cook orzo pasta with 1 tbsp salt according to the package directions, omitting additional fat. Drain and rinse with cold water. Drain well.
Combine lemon juice and next 3 ingredients (through pepper) in a large bowl; stir well with a whisk.
Add orzo, fennel, and the remaining ingredients; toss well to coat. Cover and chill.
