Shrimp, Asparagus and Zucchini Orzo Salad

Light, healthy and nutritious, tossed in the most amazing lemon Dijon vinaigrette!

With the weather getting warmer, what’s a better way to kickstart this healthy summer season than with this awesome orzo salad?

But this certainly is not just any ordinary pasta salad. It’s loaded with fresh ingredients, perfectly seasoned shrimp, crisp-tender asparagus spears, sautéed zucchini and DeLallo’s SaladSavors.

From feta and olives to blue cheese and cherries, DeLallo is dressing up salads from drab to fab, and with their Zesty Feta SaladSavors, you can load this up with bites of tangy feta, smoky Kalamata olives and strips of sweet roasted red peppers.

And to finish it off, the salad is tossed in a refreshing yet tangy lemon Dijon dressing. A dressing so good, you might as well serve it with a spoon. Or you can double the dressing recipe as needed for later use. I promise – it won’t go to waste!
