Summer is almost here and I’m going to share with you how I like to spend my summer holiday… at the beach! The best days of summer are when my husband and I pack a lunch and some drinks, grab our towels, beach umbrella and sunscreen and make a day of relaxing on the warm sand of the beach and taking in the warming Southern California sun.
In addition to this orange chicken orzo salad, another favorite I like to take to the beach is a tuna pita pockets (< click for recipe link).
I love the simplicity of this dish and it is so packed with fresh orange flavor, both in the dressing that is mixed with all the ingredients, as well as the chicken that is cooked in an orange sauce. There are jewels of fresh orange segments mixed throughout the salad for an extra burst of flavor, along with roasted red peppers and spring onions for a pop of flavor as well as vibrance and color. Once the orzo and chicken are cooked, all the ingredients are mixed together and the salad is done!
