I’m usually not a huge fan of pasta salad. It often can be gloppy and soggy, the result of too much dressing. But when the pasta is orzo, I’ll happily take part.
A small, rice-shaped pasta, orzo makes an excellent salad because you don’t need a heavy dressing. What’s more, orzo lends itself to a variety of extras, such as olives, feta cheese and red onions.
This salad is light and crisp yet very flavorful. Perfect for a warm summer afternoon. Serve it with pita bread.
