another day, another salad!

Kamut Orzo with Mint, Yellow Pepper, Goat Cheese and Olives

16 ounce package of kamut orzo or regular orzo, or any other pasta - cooked according to package
2 cups chopped tomatoes (I take the seeds out, I find they make the salad wet)
1 yellow (red or orange would work too) finely chopped
1/2 cup chopped fresh mint
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
3 green onions, finely chopped
1/3 cup crumbled goat cheese
1/4 cup sundried olives (I left the pits in and mixed them through)

1/8 cup plain yogurt
juice and zest of a lemon
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp dijon mustard
1 garlic clove, grated or finely chopped
few dashes of hot sauce
salt and pepper

Mix all the salad ingredients in a large bowl. Whisk salad dressing together and pour over salad, mix well.
