Omg, totally agree with Potluck. This salad is over the top awesome. It tastes so special, it seems like it was a lot more difficult to make. I will be making this filling beautiful salad regularly, too! Thanks so much!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Saute orzo and garlic in olive oil until lightly browned, about 5 minutes.
  2. Slowly add chicken broth and Italian seasonings.
  3. Bring to boil. Cover and cook on low until most of the water is absorbed, about 20 minutes, stirring now and then.
  4. Let cool.
  5. Add bacon, onions, broccoli, tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper.
  6. Chill in fridge about and hour; toss with cheese and serve.
  7. **I cook my bacon in the microwave on a paper plate with paper towels about 2 min for 4 slices, I also steam the broccoli in the microwave until just done, not mushy about 3 min.**.
