“Quintessential Greek flavors - feta, lemon and dill - combine perfectly in this hearty salad. To complete the Mediterranean mood, try pairing it with a Greek Retsina or a Portuguese Vinho Verde. From EatingWell magazine May/June 1996, and "EatingWell Serves Two" Dietary Exchanges: 4 starch, 2 vegetable, 1 very lean meat, 1 fat (4 Carbohydrate Serving). Posted for ZWT6. NOTE: Recipe amended to indicate fresh lemon juice and optional addition of some greek seasoning for more flavor.”

  2. Mash garlic and salt into a paste with the back of a spoon in a medium bowl. Whisk in lemon juice and pepper. Add the cooked orzo, artichokes, chickpeas, feta, dill and mint; toss gently to combine. Add tomatoes and toss again.
  3. Divide spinach between 2 plates and top with the salad.
