Mediterranean Shrimp Orzo Salad

The Best Shrimp Orzo Salad
This Mediterranean Shrimp and Orzo salad is anything but your standard pasta salad.  Lemony  shrimp, tiny orzo pasta, crunchy cucumbers and plump tomatoes and the creamiest feta cheese give this refreshing salad a delightful flavor. I love to serve it by the pool or outdoors under the patio on warm spring and summer evenings. Hearty enough for a complete meal but light enough to eat two servings and not feel guilty.

Creamy Homemade Cashew Milk
