Orzo Pasta and Ham Salad

This was a new pasta salad for me, really simple but really effective. It didn't taste WeightWatchersish at all and is definitely one to make again and again.

Orzo Pasta and Ham Salad (from Cooking the WeightWatchers Way)
(Serves 4)
(8 WW ProPoints per serving)

225g dried orzo pasta
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 tsp olive oil
2 large tomatoes, chopped
1/2 cucumber, chopped
6 spring onions, chopped finely
200g ham, chopped
2 tbsp chopped parsley
black pepper

Bring a pan of water to the boil and cook the orzo according to packet instructions. 

Meanwhile, put the oil and vinegar into a large bowl and add the tomatoes, cucumber and spring onions, stirring gently to mix.

Drain the cooked pasta and run under the cold tap. Drain again thoroughly and add it to the salad bowl with the  ham and parsley and stir everything together. Season with black pepper and pack into a lunchbox or serve.
