I got this recipe years ago from an online friend, and adjusted it to suit my family's tastes. It's such a great salad. I take it to potlucks all the time, and it's always the first thing gone! Great alone, or use it to stuff a tomato. Also, you can add grape or cherry tomatoes.

I made this for ZWT 9's trip to Greece, but will have it again. Great flavors and so pretty. I did add the tomatoes and made my olives Kalamata. It could also use diced red onion instead of the green for a more Greek taste. Thanks for posting!

Lovely and refreshing! I made this to bring to my Uncles house for the 4th of July. I used whole wheat orzo and added extra lemon juice and lemon zest. I also used sliced small sweet peppers (red, orange and yellow). I think this would be great with cucumber too. Made for the ZWT4- Jefes.
