  3. Slice cucumbers into half moons or quarters, thinly slice red onion, and halve cherry tomatoes and olives.
  4. Add chopped veggies to the bowl with the orzo and add artichokes, feta, and chickpeas.
  5. Pour in dressing, starting with about 1/3 cup, and toss to coat. Add more dressing as needed.
  6. Refrigerate, covered, until ready to serve.
