This was a fantastic side to my grilled lamb. It tasted so fresh. I'm not a big zucchini fan, but I didn't mind the raw zucchini, in fact perhaps even liked it more than the cooked variety. My DH & I both raved over this at dinner last nite. In fact he took the leftovers (made the whole recipe for just the 2 of us, & glad I did) to work for lunch. It's so refreshing that on a hot day I can see this as your main course with a crusty bread. Thanks Andi for a really great recipe.
Perfectly delicious, attractive, and healthy! I almost sauteed the zucchini but did not and so glad I left it raw. The combination of flavors is very nice. I love all your stories, Andi! Had for a wonderful lunch with my men who are splitting wood today and they enjoyed it also. Thanks for posting. Made for PRMR.
Delicious! I didn't have the tiny zucchini, but did have a couple of baby cucumbers, so I used them. I also added fresh mozzarella, as I had some that needed using and I decided to go with fresh garlic. Made for Every Day Holiday Tag. :)
Perfect for simple, clean flavors. If I ever get the hang of gardening, this will be made all the time because it's really the flavors of the fresh produce that make this so fantastic. Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT.
i would love to rate this recipe, but alas, i cant. the onion i used was really bad so it ruined the flavor of everything. im sure it would taste wonderful though. i even added some black olives. i will try making it again later... zwt 4
This was a hit at our 4th of July party! I really liked the texture of the orzo with the veggies and dressing. I subbed a little fresh basil (which wasn't enough, but all we had) and several tablespoons of pesto for the cilantro. I also used fresh garlic in place of the powder. I didn't plate it as suggested, just mixed it all together - which makes a very pretty and refreshing summer salad. Thanks Andi for another great recipe. Reveiwed by a Chic Chef for ZWT 4 Zingo
What a perfect summer salad! I used a mixture of diced tomatoes and heirloom cherry tomatoes. I also added some fresh basil and oregano. I can't wait to eat the leftovers tomorrow! Made for ZWT 4 by a fellow Jefe de la Cocina. EDIT: I've been eating the left overs and they get better and better!
june1-This is my kind of salad! Simple, hardly any dressing.. it's my first time having a salad using mozarella and mixing it with orzo. I used minced garlic instead of powder and I must say mmmmmm these are delicious! Thank you! I'll be making this again! P.S. Excuse me but I have to get again another serving. :) June 2- P.S. picky DH (who hardly praises) was asking me about this and said it's so fantastic he's requesting me to make it again. Excellent one, Andi!
Andi, yet another winner from the farm. This is the first time I've ever cooked orzo and it definately will not be the last. I loved the gentle blend of flavors that melded together perfectly. I used slightly less olive oil than called for a just a spritz more lemon juice. Had this as a side with grilled pork chops, and it went well with the grilled meat. I can't wait to make this again with fresh garden vegetables instead of store bought. Thanks for yet another winner.
This was an extremely fresh, light and tasty little recipe! We used fresh mozzarella, which enhanced the overall fresh taste. I also appreciated the lemon/pepper combination. The only thing we did differently was to reduce the oil by 1/3 to save some calories. Wonderful salad. Not only is Andi an expert at cooking, she an expert on writing as well;)
