Today, we are pulling from the recipe archives here at Field Roast, and found this nice and fresh, simply made orzo pasta salad with Italian Sausage. This recipe is pretty versatile…because you can adjust the ingredients to your taste, or what you have on hand! It is always a favorite side, but the meaty goodness of our sausages can easily make this side a meal. I like to pair this with a nice fruit salad, and dream that it doesn’t constantly rain in the spring in Seattle…
2 cups cooked Orzo
1/2 a medium sized red onion diced
1/2 red pepper diced
1/2 green pepper diced
1/2 cup coarsely chopped almonds
1 bunch of Italian parsley
1 Field Roast Italian Sausage cut into coins and pan fried or grilled.
1/4 cup olive oil
1 lemon juiced (a couple tablespoons)
1 clove of garlic finely minced
salt and pepper to taste
Mix the ingredients for the lemon vinaigrette and set aside.
Mix in a bowl all the salad ingredients along with the hot grilled Field Roast Italian Sausage. Serve hot or cold!
