This fast summer salad makes a perfect light dinner for those nights when it's just too hot to eat. Serve as is, or you can add cherry tomatoes, black olives, roasted red peppers, or whatever fresh veggies you have on hand.
1 pound orzo pasta
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup pine nuts, toasted
1 1/4 cups feta (6 ounces), crumbled
1 cup thinly sliced scallion greens
Cook orzo in a 6- to 8-quart pot of boiling salted water until tender, then drain well in a colander. Whisk together lemon juice, oil, and salt and pepper to taste in a large bowl, then add hot orzo and toss. Cool orzo, then toss with pine nuts, feta, and scallion greens. Season with salt and pepper.
