Chicken and Tomato Orzo Salad with Goat's Cheese

This salad was delicious! I haven't made a recipe from this blog in while and now I've made two in a week and it's such a shame that she stopped writing it. If your going to pack to take to work, pack the dressing separately and add a lunch time.

Chicken and Tomato Orzo Salad with Goat's Cheese
(from The Sweets Life)
(Serves 6)

300g uncooked orzo
2-3 large chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
100g spinach, roughly chopped
1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 red onion, 
2 tbsp chopped basil
4 tbsp red wine vinegar
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper
75g crumbled goat cheese

Cook the orzo according to package instructions. Drain, run under the cold tap and drain well.

Combine the pasta, chicken, spinach, tomatoes, pepper, onion, and basil in a large bowl, tossing to mix well.

In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, oil, salt, and pepper. Pour over the pasta mixture and toss well to coat. Sprinkle with goat cheese just before serving.
