Ingredients

  • 5 Aloha peppers
  • 1 head of crunchy lettuce
  • ¾ cup orzo, cooked
  • 1 cup shredded purple cabbage
  • 1 ½ cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 cucumber, sliced
  • ⅓ cup feta cheese
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 2 tsp. dried oregano
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Cook orzo according to package directions. In the meantime wash and chop the lettuce, tomatoes, and cucumbers.
  2. Prepare the salad by combining the lettuce, cooked orzo, cabbage, tomatoes, and cucumbers together. Top with crumbled feta.
  3. Whisk together the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, lemon juice, garlic, oregano and salt and pepper until combined.
  4. Cut the tops off of the peppers and remove the inside stems and seeds.
  5. Drizzle the dressing over the salad and use tongs to scoop the salad into each of the cleaned out peppers.
