Bunny Teaser and Orzo Pasta Salad Recipe

THIS JUST IN!!! Before we chow down, make sure to check out my guest post on Chic Vegan called “Bunnies in the Bathroom.” A version of it will appear hear in the next week or so.  Ok, on to the food…

Spring is here and that means picnic fare!  This recipe was inspired by the Italian Rice & Beans recipe I found on Vegan Yum Yum. And believe me, it is yum yum.

1 package orzo pasta, cooked
1 Can Great Northern Beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 Cup Oil Packed Sun-Dried Tomatoes, chopped
2 Large Handfuls Baby Spinach
Zest from 1/2 Organic Lemon
Salt to taste
Balsamic Vinaigrette to taste (I use Good Seasons)

1. Line a large bowl with the spinach. Cook the orzo pasta, drain, and transfer to bowl, placing it on top of the spinach. This will cause the spinach to wilt.
2. Add the other ingredients and mix thoroughly.
3. Chill and enjoy! (or eat it right away, which is what I do)

It’s so beautiful and colorful, I wish I would get on the ball and start taking pictures of all this food!  This recipe makes a ton of this stuff.  You can have it as a side dish to something else, or serve it with a nice salad as a meal.  Great dish to bring to the family picnic.  I make a batch of this early in the week and have the left-overs as a side to a not tuna sandwich for lunch.
