This easy pasta salad is packed full of taste and textures from the fresh tomatoes and cucumbers and goes great with your backyard barbecues and barbecued chicken. Try it with Tomato-Balsamic Barbecued Chicken. This recipe was posted in my local news paper. Enjoy.

Updated! So I finally had all the ingredients to make this and it came out pretty good! The flavors blend nicely and the differing textures of the cucumber, orzo, & feta melded nicely together. The kids didn't care for it much but I think that's because there are some very strong flavors that they just aren't used to. I would recommend!
