  • 2 cups orzo pasta
  • 2 (10 ounce) packages baby spinach
  • 3 cups chopped grilled chicken
  • 2 roma tomatoes, diced
  • 1/2 cup pine nuts
  • 1/4 cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons capers, or to taste (optional)
  • Dressing:
  • 1 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/3 cup olive oil

  3. Whisk balsamic vinegar, olive oil, sugar, parsley, basil, garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper together in a bowl; drizzle over salad. Toss to coat. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over salad.
