orzo, chicken and spinach saladCraving a dinner that is delicious, nutritious, and simple to make?

This salad is a full meal. It contains all the nutrients you need at one time.

The first time i tried this salad was in an italian restaurant. I loved it and decided to do it at home, and the result came tastier!

Ingredients (for 4 people)

  • orzo pasta 500g
  • grilled chicken breast 400g
  • fresh spinach 350g (chopped)
  • feta cheese 80g (cut in small cubes)
  • 2 medium tomatoes (cut in medium cubes)
  • olives 50g
  • roasted pine seeds (a handful)

Dressing: lemon and olive oil

Why lemon? because there’s a compound in spinach called oxalic acid, which blocks the absorption of calcium and iron. An easy way to solve this problem is to pair spinach with a food high in vitamin C.
