Watermelon Feta Orzo Salad

Have you ever had watermelon and feta cheese together? If not, do so immediately. Even if you’re not a fan of feta, there’s something about the sweetness of watermelon that cuts the sourness in the cheese and suddenly there’s a party in your mouth. Ask my brother, who will only eat feta if it’s paired with watermelon.

Randomly, I found this recipe in a Weight Watchers booklet a friend passed along. I think a serving is like 3 points or something. I don’t know much about the point system but I think 3 points is low right? It was really easy and the Husband even said “it’s an adult take on mac and cheese,” which I’m assuming has to do with the orzo, which is a type of Italian pasta that looks more like rice and is delicious by the way so try it immediately.

Watermelon feta orzo recipe:

2 cups seedless watermelon cubed
1 cup orzo, cooked and cooled
1/2 cup feta cheese, crumbled
1/2 cup chopped parsley or basil
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Cook orzo like you would any pasta, drain and let cool. Toss with watermelon, cheese and parsley. Drizzle with a little extra virgin olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
