Hi, my name is Chris Henry. I'm the founder of Freshpersonalchefservice.com. Today I'm going to be making a delicious orzo salad with fresh shrimp, dill, scallions, kalamata olives and feta cheese. We're going to start out with a pound of orzo pasta and this is cooked in salted boiling water and the key to this is you're going to want to really drain this well. You're going to let it sit in the colander for a while and then go ahead and put it out on some paper towels and let it really really drain. What that's going to allow the orzo to do is really absorb all the flavors of the dressing and of all the other flavors that go into the pasta salad. So we're going to go ahead and start off with a pound of orzo. We're going to add to that kalamata olives, green onions, about three scallions, chopped. We're going to add to that fresh dill and beautiful shrimp, tails cut off, there we go. Okay, we're going to go ahead and crumble the feta cheese on at the very end. So right now we'll go ahead and make the dressing and that's two thirds cup of good olive oil, one lemon, squeezed, lemon juice, fresh lemon juice, yum, smells delicious. Okay and we're going to do a half teaspoon salt and a pinch of pepper, there we go and the key ingredient here is the white wine vinegar or you can use champagne vinegar. So we're going to do two tablespoons and two, okay, there we go and we're going to whisk all that together, there we go, get that all incorporated and then we will toss the salad. Oh that looks beautiful and it smells so fresh, there we go. And give that a good toss, oh that's beautiful, there we go, okay. And now I'm going to add the feta cheese. I'm going to just crumble that on the very top of the salad and all these Greek flavors really give it a delicious, delicious taste and tang, there we go, there we go, there you have it, orzo pasta salad with shrimp.
