Meatless Monday Recipe: Caprese Salad with Orzo #sponsored

This Meatless Monday post is sponsored by SC Johnson but all opinions expressed here are my own.

With kids heading back to school this month, our schedule is a bit more hectic during the week, leaving us with less time to prepare dinner. This recipe for Caprese Salad with Orzo contains fresh tomatoes and basil, which are both plentiful in gardens throughout August. The inclusion of pine nuts and mozzarella cheese makes this a filling and well-balanced meatless dish. The orzo used in this recipe is a small, rice shaped pasta available in most major grocery stores. If you can’t find it, you can substitute it for just about any small pasta shape that you have on hand. Feel free to prepare this dish ahead of time to help make dinnertime less chaotic!  Check out the recipe on the SC Johnson Greener Choices blog and let me know what you think!
