Orzo Salad

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by PetsRus

Packed with flavor! All this salad needs is some good crusty bread to make it a complete summer meal. Also good without the tuna but then use less lemon juice. Fridge time not included.

We loved this salad! Great in the summer - very light and refreshing on a hot day. Loved the tuna and egg in the salad as well - everything in one dish! I did add fresh basil, shredded carrots, and grated parmesan cheese.
