This is a quick, simple, and delicious Greek inspired orzo side dish which pairs wonderfully with chicken. The added spinach, tomatoes, kalamata olives, and red onion to the orzo was so tasty when dressed lightly with olive oil, lemon juice, sea salt, freshly cracked lemon pepper, and feta cheese. This dish is light, healthy, and so tasty.
