Swap out your white rice with fresh orzo. Pair this classic side with salmon, chicken, or another lean protein.
Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a small bowl, combine garlic, lemon juice and zest, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Whisk vigorously. Pour half of the mixture over the salmon and place it in the oven to roast for about 15 to 22 minutes. Dust with mint when it comes out of the oven.
In a separate bowl, toss spinach and olives with remaining dressing until well-coated. Add Zoë’s Orzo “Tabouli” and mix gently.
Serve spinach salad as the base for salmon fillets.
