I love a good fresh pasta salad – especially Greek pasta salad! When Jovial Foods recently launched their new grain free pasta line (made with cassava flour), I knew I had to make this using their orzo! These tiny rice-like noodles are so delicious paired with tomatoes, red onion, black olives, cucumbers, feta, and a homemade Greek dressing. You can certainly omit the feta to keep this paleo and dairy free!

What Ingredients do I need to make this Grain Free Greek Orzo Salad?
- 2 boxes Jovial Foods grain free orzo
- 1 cucumber
- 1 cup cherry tomatoes
- diced red onion
- 1/2 cup black olives
- 1/2 cup feta cheese
For the dressing:
- Olive oil
- Red wine vinegar
- dijon mustard
- minced garlic
That’s it! The dressing can be made ahead of time and you can toss it all together when you’re ready to serve. This pasta salad also holds up really well in the fridge! Sometimes gluten free pasta can get hard when it sits in the fridge, but not this orzo. We enjoyed it for 3 days after I made it!
This recipe serves 6 people!
I served this with my Garlic Butter Dill Shrimp and it was one of the best dinners I’ve had in a LONG time! Highly recommend serving with chicken, shrimp, or any other protein! You can also serve on its own as a lovely vegetarian meal.

Made this tonight and it was so amazingly delicious!! My husband normally hates cucumbers and olives and he said they went perfectly with this dish. I loved the dressing as well. Such a light and fresh summer meal. We had chicken thighs so I added those in cubed up, delish! Your recipes never disappoint!
