Summer orzo pasta salad

Pasta salad is one of the best parts of summer. And Orzo is super delish. A rice-sized pasta, it is great in salads and soups!!

-1 cup orzo
-cucumber, diced
-cherry tomato
-red or yellow bell pepper
-red onion
-1-2 cloves garlic
-olive oil
-red wine vinegar
-feta cheese

Other thoughts I have on ingredients: black olives, roast red pepper, basil, spinach or arugula....

Boil the orzo. While boiling, dice garlic and add to olive oil. Drain pasta and allow to cool. Mix in veggies and seasonings, then dress with garlic/olive oil mixture and red wine vinegar. Toss and serve.
