Easy Summer Pasta Salad

During the summer months, we often pack a meal to go. We are busy running to and from activities or sitting at a ball game so we want something that can go in the cooler without worrying about it spoiling. This is a great light lunch or snack to hold you over until dinner and is a delicious side for a BBQ or picnic. It is very easy to put together and tastes great!


1/3 box of cooked orzo pasta

1 (15oz) can garbanzo beans

1/2 cup loosely packed cilantro

1/2 pint of grape tomatoes

Juice of 1/2 a lime or 2 tbsp. of lime juice

Drizzle (1 tsp.) of olive oil to keep pasta from sticking


Cook pasta per directions. Drain and set aside in serving bowl. After 5 minutes, add oil and mix evenly.

Cut cilantro into small pieces with kitchen scissors.

Slice grape tomatoes in half.

Add cilantro and tomatoes to pasta.

And drained can of garbanzo beans.

Mix together.

Pour lime juice on top and mix evenly.

Chill in refrigerator until ready to serve.
