The perfect Salmon Orzo Salad with lemon and fresh dill is the perfect dish to bring to your next dinner party or potluck!



  • 1.5 pounds salmon (boneless and skinless)
  • 8 oz orzo
  • 4 oz feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1 large english cucumber, diced
  • 1/2 large red onion, diced
  • 3 tbsp fresh dill, chopped
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 lemons, juiced
  • Cracked black pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 450. Place salmon on baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes until internal temperature reads 145 degree F.
  2. While salmon is cooking, cook orzo according to package instructions ( usually takes ~9 minutes).
  3. Once orzo and salmon are done cooking, allow to cool before assembly of the salad.
  4. Crumble salmon into small pieces and combine with the orzo, red onion, feta and dill. Stir to combine.
  5. In a small bowl combine olive oil, black pepper and lemon juice.
  6. Toss salad in dressing and refrigerate until serving.


This salad stores in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. You can use dried dill instead of fresh if that’s all you have, but I prefer fresh.
