Lemon Chive Langoustine Orzo Salad

This was inspired by Eating Well. I had some langoustines so used them instead of shrimp. I added asparagus and swapped out dill for lots of fresh chives that came in my CSA. It is a delightful salad, great for picnics and tastes better the next day.

8 oz orzo or small pasta

1 lb langoustines, shrimp or bay shrimp cooked

4 c snap peas, cut into bite size pieces

1 lb asparagus, steamed and cut into small pieces

1/4 c olive oil

1/4 c minced chives

1 tbsp dijon

Zest and juice of one large lemon

Salt and pepper

Cook orzo according to package.

Combine oil, lemon juice, mustard,chives and salt and pepper in a large boil and whisk to combine. Add veggies and shrimp, toss to combine. Drain orzo and stir to combine. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Serves 6.
