citrus fish and orzo 001 We love this dish because it can be served with just about anything, or even on it’s own!

Be sure to remove the seeds from the tomatoes and cucumber so the salad doesn’t begin to swim in juices – soggy pasta salad is just no fun!

citrus fish and orzo 007 We served this with a piece of freshly caught striped bass (thank you Ryan fro carrying that back!) in a citrus sauce.

The crunch from the celery and cucumber add great texture to this fresh summery salad, with fragrant basil, sweet cherry tomatoes and crumbled feta cheese.  The dressing is simply olive oil, salt and pepper so there is little in the way of ingredients.
