I love anything that has feta, tomatoes and cucumbers all in one bowl! This tasty salad has orzo pasta and avocadoes to boot. It is fast, simple, tasty and light on the waist line.

To make this last for lunches for the week, I prepped a bowl of the orzo, pre-chopped the cucumbers, then whipped up a small container of the dressing. Each day I just layered the pasta, veggies, avocado and a little of the dressing in a container. Perfection!

This recipe is so easy, that in truth, even I couldn't mess it up! My kids ate several bowls of this when I made it for lunch. And that, my friends, makes it one of my all time favorite recipes!
