Let’s start cooking!
- Freshly ground black pepper
- 1 head Boston lettuce–optional
- 3/4 cup of diced peeled cucumber
- 1/4 cup of chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
- 1/4 cup of chopped fresh mint
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 cup of chopped green onions including 2 inches of green stem
- 3 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice
- 1 1/2 teaspoons of grated lemon zest
- Olive oil
- 1 pound orzo
- 6 ounces to 8 sugar snap peas, trimmed, cut into ¾-inch pieces
- 1 1/4 cups diced tomatoes
- To make the salad: Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Add sugar snap peas; cook 1 minute, then transfer peas to a strainer with a slotted spoon. Rinse with cold water and drain. Add orzo to the same pot. Boil until tender but still firm to bite; about 8 minutes. Drain and cool.
- In a large nonreactive bowl, mix together orzo, sugar snap peas, tomatoes, cucumber, green onions, parsley, mint, and lemon zest.
- To make the dressing: Combine lemon juice, lemon zest, and garlic in a medium bowl. Gradually whisk in olive oil. Add 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper.
- Pour enough dressing over the salad to coat well. You may have a little dressing left over. Season salad with salt and pepper, if needed. (The salad can be made 1 hour ahead. Do not let it sit longer, or the peas and onions will start to lose their bright color. Cover salad and refrigerate. Bring to room temperature before serving.)
- To serve, line shallow serving bowl with lettuce leaves, if you desire. Mound salad in bowl.
