Salmon and Orzo Salad
 
Ingredients
  • 8 oz orzo
  • 1 7-ounce package pink salmon
  • ½ cucumber, diced
  • 3 small green onions, sliced
  • ½ cup non-fat or light mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp lemon zest, grated
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp dried dillweed
  • ¼ tsp pepper
Instructions
  1. Cook orzo according to package directions. If you are concerned about your sodium intake then only lightly salt your water.
  2. Once pasta is cooked, drain it and rinse it in cold water. This will stop the cooking process. Transfer to a bowl and let sit for 10 minutes.
  3. Dice your cucumber and slice your onions. Add these to a different bowl and add the remaining ingredients. Mix well.
  4. Add the orzo pasta and mix well.
  5. Serve immediately
