Orzo Pasta Salad with Olive, Feta and Radicchio

Orzo Pasta Salad

I made a very flavorfull and colorfull salad at work the other day, it has a lot of ingredients that I love like Radicchio, Kalamata olives, Feta Cheese, Fresh Basil and sun dried Tomaoes. I used orzo pasta which resemble grains of rice and quickly grilled the radicchio which gives it a slight smoky flavor.

1 cup cooked Orzo pasta
1/4 cup slice Kalamata olives
2 each lightly grilled Radicchio
1/4 cup Feta cheese
handfull Fresh Basil Leafs
1/4 cup Sun Dried Tomatoes
Pinch whole Flat Leaf Parsley
1/2 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
3 Tablespoons Sherry Vinegar
Kosher Salt/Fresh Cracked Pepper

1. Mix all ingredients and add salt to taste (note: the feta and olives are salty)
