This easy cold air fryer grilled vegetable orzo salad is the perfect summer side dish! It's a healthy pasta salad loaded with veggies and a simple Italian dressing. I like to make this salad a day ahead to serve at barbecues and with meals.
8 ounces Jovial Gluten Free Orzo Pasta
10 ounces Grape Tomatoes, cut in half
1 Tbsp Minced Garlic
1 small Red Onion, chopped
1 Red Bell Pepper, seeded and chopped
1 Yellow Bell Pepper, seeded and chopped
2 cups Zucchini, seeded and chopped
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 tsp Sea Salt
1/4 tsp Coarse Ground Black Pepper
1 tsp Dried Basil
1 tsp Italian Seasoning
1 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
3 Tbsp Olive Oil
In a large pot cook the gluten free orzo pasta per the package instructions. Drain and rinse with cold water.
In a large mixing bowl add the tomatoes, garlic, onion, bell peppers, zucchini, olive oil, salt, pepper, basil and Italian seasoning. Stir to combine.
Pour the vegetable mixture into the basket of your air fryer and cook at 360 degrees for 5 minutes. Carefully drain the excess liquid from the air fryer basket.
Pour the cooked orzo, vegetable mixture, apple cider vinegar and olive oil into a serving bowl. Stir to combine.
Refrigerate for at least one hour before serving.
