Orzo and Spinach Salad

I bet you thought that I had forgotten about this post! I didn't, it is just the end of the semester and that really easy assignment that I thought would take only an hour ended up taking, like, seven. Oh well. That's what I get for procrastinating.

This salad is so simple to make and incredibly tasty! When I have dinner, I am often not satisfied with just a vegetable on the side. I also want a carb, even if I am running low on points and carbs are some of the most point-y things. Well, this salad is low in cards, points and suited my needs quite well. It is definitely an addition to my normal repertoire.
