Greek Orzo and Grilled Shrimp Salad with Mustard-Dill Vinaigrette

I found this recipe last summer pre-blog and fell in love with it. Like, loved it so much that I have been WAITing for the perfect warm weather occasion to make it again. Memorial Day happened to be perfect for it and I made enough on purpose so that I could eat it (sans shrimp) the rest of the week for lunch!

If you like, you can make the orzo salad beforehand, chill, and just bring it to room temperature before grilling the shrimp and serving. And the original amounts will give you WAY more than 4 servings, especially if you are serving it as a side dish.

I didn't really change anything from the original recipe, except for leaving out the green onions, so I will just link you to it here on the Food Network. Get ready to enjoy a delicious, summery pasta salad complete with a perfect mustard-dill and feta flavor!
