The dressing is perfect; light and creamy. I can't eat peppers so substituted with celery and finely chopped sweet onion. No cilantro. I love the dish with orzo. Thanks for a great recipe.

Made this yesterday & turned out really nicely. I think cilantro tastes like soap so I tried using Italian parsley instead. I felt like it was missing a little something but can't quite put my finger on it - I'll make again next time and maybe throw in some dill. Still giving a 5 star rating because I can't deduct a star when I purposefully omitted something. With a tiny bit of tinkering this is definitely a keeper though :)
