      I can't believe I am the first person to rate this salad..I wanted something different and was looking for salads that would be good to take camping. I was getting tired of potatoe salad and tuna noodle salads.I made this salad and 2 others#46410 southwestern pasta salad and #10733 broccoli salad, for a family get together potluck..This salad was given the highest marks but all 3 were wonderful,flavorful,colorful and just tasted great. I would highly recommend this salad, you will not be disappointed. I did however brown the orzo pretty brown and added a couple more roma tomatoes...My daughter is making this one for a graduation party,it is sure to make a big hit..Thank You for this wonderful recipe..I will make it often...
