I love orzo but all of the salads recipes I have use cheese and I wanted one without. This one was excellent, I really liked the black beans with the orzo. I like keeping something in the frig for eating on the run and this was great for that, it kept well and was a great snack for between errands.

This is an excellant salad. My husband has diabetes and I'm always looking for healthy foods for a variety in his diet. This has excellant flavor with the Cilantro in it along nice texture variety with Orzo, tomatoes etc. I wouldn't make any changes to the recipe as it is excellant as is.

This was just okay for me, but I left out the olives, since we don't like them. The texture was perfect though.
