Asparagus, Sundried Tomato, and Orzo Salad

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by jewelsf

A yummy and simple way to use fresh asparagus. I was inspired to write this recipe after watching my almost-4-year-old picky eater gobble up a mixture of orzo and sundried tomatos at Trader Joe's. The asparagus can easily be changed to another vegetable; I have successfully used brussels sprouts with a very pleasing result.

Enjoyed the combo of orzo & the veggies in your recipe, & now I have a new way to prepare asparagus, something we both like! Sundried tomatoes aren't something I use often, but they certainly work in this satisfying salad! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
