Salad Recipe: Shrimp and Spinach-Orzo Salad

Ingredients:
1 pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
10 medium radishes, quartered
1 small cucumber, peeled, seeded and diced
1/2 red onion, quartered and thinly sliced
4 cups spinach, thinly sliced
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
1/2 cup orzo
1/2 cup packed fresh mint, chopped
1/2 cup packed fresh parsley, chopped
1/3 cup plus 2 tbsps fresh lemon juice
1/3 cup plus 2 tbsps extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup pitted oil-cured olives, chopped
Kosher salt
Freshly ground pepper

How To Make:
1. Preheat the broiler. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add the orzo and cook until al dente, about 8 minutes. Drain, rinse with cold water and shake dry.
2. Meanwhile, toss the spinach, radishes, cucumber, onion, olives, mint, parsley and 1/3 cup each lemon juice and olive oil in a large bowl. Add the orzo and season with salt and pepper.
3. Toss the shrimp with the remaining 2 tbsps each lemon juice and olive oil in a bowl. Arrange on a foil-lined broiler pan and broil until slightly pink, 1 to 2 minutes. Turn and broil until just cooked through, 2 to 3 more minutes.
4. Divide the salad among plates. Top with the shrimp, sprinkle with the feta and season with pepper.
