I modified this just a bit, to make it even better!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat.
  2. Add the pasta and cook until tender but still firm to the bite, stirring occasionally, about 8 to 10 minutes.
  3. Drain pasta well and drizzle the pasta with 3 tablespoons olive oil, toss, and set aside to cool.
  4. Once the orzo is cool, transfer to a large serving bowl.
  5. Add the remaining ingredients and toss gently to combine. Serve.

I had this salad without the chicken (the original Giada recipe) and it was great!!!! I really like the addition of the extra 1/4 cup pine nuts (it did need them) and the chicken would make it more of a "meal" salad. This is definitely a keeper! Thanks for posting!
