1 cup Dry Orzo
2 cups Chicken Broth
1 Red Bell Pepper, small dice
2 Green Onions, sliced
½ cup Kalamata Olives
6 Mint Leaves, chiffonade
10 Basil Leaves, chiffonade
⅓ cup Feta
In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the orzo and toast until golden, 3-4 minutes. Add the stock and reduce heat to low. Cover and cook until water is absorbed, about 12 minutes.
In a medium bowl mix together all the meatball ingredients except for the olive oil and form into 1 inch balls.
Heat a skillet over medium heat and the 2 Tbsp of olive oil. Cook meatballs 3-4 minutes, flip and cover, and cook an additional 5-6 minutes or until the meatballs are done.
In a small bowl combine the greek yogurt, vinegar, oil, rub, salt, and 2 Tbsp water.
In a serving bowl add your cooked orzo, top with red bell peppers, green onions, olives, mint, basil, feta, and dressing
