Tzatziki kritharaki salad (Greek orzo pasta salad)

Kritharaki is a Greek specialty pasta very similar to orzo. This is a simple way to serve it in a tzatziki salad. :) Enjoy.

Last year: Mixed seeds and honey crunchy hearts.
Two years ago: Baked Brie en croute with apples and thyme (French).
Three years ago: Simplest veggie noodle soup (vegan)Caramelized onion and green garlic pizzaFruit skewers with molten double chocolate and Creamy pasta with green onions, muhrooms and ham (very light).

Ingredients (serves 2):
  • 200 g kritharaki (or orzo pasta)
  • 100 g Greek yogurt
  • half of a large cucumber (100-150 g)
  • 2-3 garlic cloves
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • salt and pepper to taste

Boil the pasta according to package instructions and drain it. Put it in a large salad bowl and mix it with the olive oil. In another bowl, finely chop the cucumber and garlic.

Mix the yogurt and lemon juice into the cucumber-garlic mix. Pour it over the pasta and mix very well. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
It's done, dig in! :)
