fresh from the farmers market

salad night: fresh spring mix salad & emily's orzo pesto salad with fresh cherry tomatoes. the best cherry tomatoes i've ever had, and i don't even like cherry tomatoes. i think i do now. but only from the sweet little old lady at the farmers market.

emily's orzo pesto salad
1 box orzo
1 small jar of pesto
3 fresh garlic cloves, finely chopped
1/2 juiced lemon
1 box cherry tomatoes
1/2 smal box feta cheese (i used chevre)
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

cook orzo according to package directions. meanwhile, mix pesto, lemon juice, garlic, and parmesan cheese in a small bowl. add orzo and stir until well blended. stick in fridge to cool for at least an hour. add feta cheese and cherry tomatoes before serving.

p.s. this is great hot or cold!
