    Serves: 4 

    • 1 cup (185g) uncooked risoni pasta
    • 1/4 cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes
    • 1/2 cup (125ml) boiling water
    • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
    • 1 lemon, juiced and zested
    • 1/2 cup kalamata olives
    • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh parsley
    • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
    • 1 pinch salt and pepper to taste

    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Fill a pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the risoni and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through but is still firm to the bite, about 11 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.
    2. Place the sun-dried tomatoes into the boiling water in a bowl and let stand for 10 minutes to plump up. Drain off excess water.
    3. Toss the cooked risoni, sun-dried tomatoes, olive oil, lemon juice, lemon zest, olives, parsley and feta cheese together in a bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

    This is a lovely, fresh tasting salad. I added it to my Christmas Day lunch and it was enjoyed by all.  -  26 Dec 2016


    Delicious and super fresh! Great served on the side of sandwiches. I'm definitely going to make this again in the future for picnics and other outings.  -  05 Jan 2012  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Easy and yummy! I like sun dried tomatoes so I usually use 1/2 cup, but that is the only thing i adjust.  -  15 Jan 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
