    Cookin' in NJ's Note:

    This is my adaptation of several orzo salad recipes. It's a wonderful summer side dish to accompany grilled foods. I let it chill for only 1 hour but I bet the flavors will meld even better given longer chilling time.

      Enjoyed! Light, Refreshing crisp and flavorful! I used veggie bouillon. Used fresh red bell pepper in place of the roasted. Topped my salad with feta and olives(DH and DS do not enjoy them). For the dressing I used Auntie Ann's Lip Smackin' Homemade French Dressing - Longmeadow adding some fresh lemon juice Making this light and garlicky! Thanks for the good eats!
