Instructions

Cook orzo
1

Before starting, wash and dry all produce. Lightly oil the grill. While you prep, preheat the grill to 400°F over medium-high heat. Add 6 cups water and 1 tsp salt to a large pot (use same for 4 ppl). Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Add orzo to the boiling water. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until tender, 8-10 min.

Prep
2

Meanwhile, cut tomato into 1/2-inch pieces. Roughly chop spinach. Juice half the lemon, then cut remaining lemon into wedges. Whisk together tzatziki, half the Mediterranean Spice Blend and 1 tbsp lemon juice (dbl for 4 ppl) in a small bowl. Set aside. Once orzo is tender, drain, then rinse with cold water until cool to touch, 1-2 min. Drain any excess water. Transfer orzo to a medium bowl. Stir in spinach, tomatoes and half the tzatziki dressing. Place in the fridge to cool.

Grill salmon
3

Pat salmon dry with paper towels. Sprinkle with remaining Mediterranean Spice Blend, then season with salt and pepper. Add salmon to one side of the grill, skin-side down. (NOTE: Don't overcrowd the grill. Grill in batches if there isn't enough space.) Close lid and grill until salmon is cooked through, 6-7 min.** Transfer salmon to a plate, then cover to keep warm.

Finish orzo salad
4

Add feta to the medium bowl with orzo. Season with salt and pepper, then stir to combine.

Finish and serve
5

Divide orzo salad between plates. Using a fork, gently remove salmon skin, if desired. Top salad with salmon. Dollop remaining tzatziki dressing over salmon. Squeeze a lemon wedge over top, if desired.
