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!
This was really lovely Carol. I really enjoyed the flavors and textures in this fresh tasting salad. The sweet tomatoes, salty feta, sharp olives, cool cucumber and orzo all blended beautifully with the tart and tangy dressing. Thanks so much for sharing. Made for PAC Fall/08
I found this same recipe in my newspaper and made it to serve with my Greek-style dinner. We enjoyed the salad ~ I used grape tomatoes and a cucumber, both from my garden, but otherwise made as posted. It makes a TON of salad and would be great for a potluck or a party. Thanks for posting!
This was an easy salad to toss together. We felt that the feta was a bit overwhelming. We are also not true fans of Kalamata olives. As a recipe I believe this will give you a good, Mediterranean salad. Reviewed for ZWT4.
Made for Family Picks ZWT4 â€“ Great Orzo Salad. Added roasted pine nuts, red onion and used Gorgonzola instead of feta. Great flavour. Another Make again recipe. Thanks CarolAT.
I made one half the recipe for the two of us and still have plenty for left overs. I did let ir rest in the refrigerator for an hour to let the flavors blend. Delicious Mediterranean goodness in each bite.
this is a good basic recipe that is very similar to one i make often. i added fresh parsley and basil from my garden, subbed a zucchini for the cucumber, and added 4 sliced scallions. i used my own grown tomatoes and added some additional evoo before serving. i made this for zwt4, and for our bday bbq.
