Salmon in a Salad

This is a great Mediterranean pasta salad that works with fresh or canned salmon. I had a couple of salmon fillets leftover and decided to make a fresh pasta salad.
This is about as fresh and healthy as it gets!

Mediterranean Salmon Salad
1/2 cup orzo
12 oz salmon (cooked)
1/4 tsp oregano
1 cups fresh spinach
1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
1/4 cup green onion
3 Tbs lemon juice
3 Tbs feta crumbles
Salt and pepper to taste
olives (optional)
Cook the orzo according to directions. Drain. Crumble salmon and combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Toss in warm orzo. Serve either warm or as a cold salad. Top with kalamata olives and more feta cheese.
We had it for dinner with a supe'd up pizza~ one of our favorite go-to dinners.
Y'all enjoy!

Wow!!! This looks great and Hubs loves salmon. I will have to try this, although I would replace the bell pepper with a hot pepper.
