I combined several recipes to create this one...everytime I make it everyone wants the recipe so it seems to be popular.

Hands down, the best Greek pasta salad I've made or tasted yet!! (and I've made a lot of them). I had two picnics two days in a row, so I used 1 lb of orzo and doubled everything else. Then I realized I was out of capers, so I used extra kalamata olives instead. The first day was delicious, and the second day was delicious x10! I couldn't believe it could get even better! YUMMM!!!

Loved it. It was simple to make. with ingredients on hand. I added diced cucumber for crunch, grated some carrot for color. Didn't have fresh basil so I used dried and italian seasoning for oregano. This passed the husband test and will definitely make again. Adding to my cookbook!

We really liked this salad. I think it actually tasted better the next day. When I make this next time I think I will cut down just slightly on the basil and oregano.
