  • 8 ounces peas
  • 2 stalks celery, trimmed and diced
  • 1/2-ounce fresh oregano, chopped
  • 1/2-ounce fresh chives, chopped

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar
  • 5 tablespoons lemon juice or juice of one lemon
  • 2-3 plum tomatoes, diced
  • Pinch of white pepper

Cook orzo in lightly salted boiling water for 7 minutes or until cooked through. Remove to a colander, drain, and rinse well with cold water.
