Picnic in Buskett

Busquet is the old castle grounds here in the north of the island. We went out for the day and brought a picnic with us of orzo salad (recipe below), sandwiches, tea and fig rolls. 
Was a lovely day out- we walked through olive groves, orange orchards and past pomegranate trees! The children spotted snails, collected pine cones and speculated where the bears probably live. 

Orzo Salad
1/2 red onion chopped
100 grams feta (to taste)
5-6 sun dried tomatoes finely chopped
fresh spinach
fresh basil
1/2 cup roasted pine nuts or walnuts
1/2 red pepper chopped
salt and pepper
olive oil and bit of balsamic vinegar


  1. I recognize that salad!! It makes an appearance at our house from time-to-time, too. I have the formula committed to memory from all the times you made it for us at the place on Johnson Street. Delicious!

  2. It is buskett ( which means a little forest ( Bosco ) ), and not busquet ;)

  3. Guess what I'm doing for lunch tomorrow, sounds delicious, thanks
