    FloridaNative's Note:

    From the Equal Exchange website, contributed by Brian Albert, Director of Finance for Equal Exchange, this salad is full of healthy goodness and a variety of textures and flavors. I haven't tried this yet, posted for safe keeping. I think this might be good with a raspberry vinegar as an option. NOTE: recipe states 1/2 box of orzo -- I'm assuming a 1-pound box, so 8 ounces would be half. Serving size is estimated.

      Made this recipe pretty much as indicated, but I did use very rounded measures of both the cranberries & the toasted pecans (& also included the thyme), with the finished salad being enough for 4 of us! A great tasting, very nicely presented salad for the holidays! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Please Review My Recipe tag]
