Orzo Salad with Apricots, Pistachios & Ginger Oil
An aromatic, refreshing pasta salad using orzo. Very unusual and pretty. The almonds add crunch and flavor. Perfect salad for a luncheon.
Bring a medium-sized pot of salted water to a vigorous boil. Add the orzo and cook for about 10 minutes, or until tender but not mushy.
Drain immediately and rinse with cold water.
Place the orzo in a bowl and combine with fresh apricots, fresh and ground coriander, scallions, and almonds.
Toss with about 4 tablespoons of the ginger oil, until the orzo is just moist.
Season with salt and pepper. Squeeze with fresh lemon juice and mix.
