Orzo Pasta Salad

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by bojmom

I attended a class and the instructor made several different salads for us. I liked this one a lot so I asked her for the recipe. I believe that she got it from a cookbook of different salads. I wanted to eat if for dinner so I decided to add chicken to it, but she served it to us without it. She also said that you like you can add feta cheese and/or black olives to the top of the pasta dish, but I have never done that.

This was a great make ahead meal. I added grilled chicken breast and used fresh tomatoes instead of sun-dried (too expensive). The leftovers were good for lunch and snacks.
