Recipe: Amazing Orzo Basil Spinach Salad

One of my family members brought this salad over to my house as a dish to pass.  It is amazing, so I thought I’d share it with my readers.  Enjoy.  And, I think fresh basil makes everything just taste so wonderful!

½ to ¾ package of Fresh Spinach

¼ to ½ cup dried Cherries (or any type of dried berry)

  • Because there are so many wonderful vegetables in this salad, the portions are a decent size and pairs perfectly with any grilled meats and burgers. This makes enough for a large gathering, perfect for your Fourth of July parties but if you want to make this for a smaller group you can simply halve the recipe as I did here.
