Don't dilute your dressing: Drain that pasta really well before tossing it with the other ingredients. Here, the orzo needs to sit in a colander for a few minutes to be sure it's sufficiently dry. Then, if you want to be especially careful, give it an extra chance to drain on paper towels.    More Terrific Salads  

How to Make It

Step 1    

In a large pot of boiling, salted water, cook the orzo until almost done, about 10 minutes. Add the shrimp to the pot and cook, stirring occasionally, until both the shrimp and orzo are done, 2 to 3 minutes longer. Drain thoroughly.

Step 2    

In a large glass or stainless-steel bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, vinegar, salt, pepper, and oregano; add the oil slowly, whisking.

Step 3    

Add the orzo and shrimp, the scallions, olives, and feta to the dressing and toss. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Chef's Notes

Variations
