Fabulous! I have a similar orzo salad in my recipes but the dressing is fairly different and it is amazing how much difference that makes! Of course both are good ;) but I like the sweetness of the honey in this one. I halved the recipe but added a little extra feta (because I had it to use). My one criticism (if you can call it that) is that I would say this is more like 8 servings not 4 as I had enough for 4 from the half recipe. Thanks so much for sharing Susie! :)

I quartered the recipe, left out the chicken broth, used cilantro instead of basil and sunflower seeds instead of pine nuts. Delicious! This made a great breakfast for me. Thanks! Made for the Best of 2012 game.

This was so easy to put together and delivered a lot of flavor for little effort. I made this exactly as posted, except I omitted the pine nuts (which I don't care for). This does make a lot, and could easily be halved. The dressing is really tasty, and could be used for green salad, as well, with great success. Thanks for sharing. Made for Fall PAC 2012.

Wonderful! Made as written only cutting the recipe in half. I love feta cheese so I new this would be a winner. Made for September Tailgaitting Party...Diabetic Forum.

Perfect! YUM! I followed this exactly, and it was so darn good, I wish I could of eaten the whole thing. I love the feta in this, and the olives too. Simply perfect in everyway. Thank you!

Delicious and healthy and a very nice riff on the usual pasta salad. Served over greens it makes a very pretty presentation. Thanks, Susie!

Yum! Not only was this easy but it tasted great too! I halved the recipe and used grape tomatoes that were really nice in this. All of the flavors mixed well together. Thanks Susie for a nice new keeper. Made by an Unruly Under the Influence for ZWT6.

Quite possibly the best pasta salad I have ever made!! The honey sweetens the vinaigrette and goes perfectly with the tart vinegar and lemon along with the tangy feta. Fresh basil is a must and I did use the kalamata olives - I couldn't think of any way to make this better. I will be making this again and we make lots of pasta salads during the summer, so happy to find one that doesn't rely on mayo. A MUST TRY!! Made for ZWT6.

This definately gets two thumbs up! The blend of flavors and brillant colors makes this a taste and eye pleasing dish. I reduced the recipe to two servings and got more like 4. I used the grape tomatoes and other than adding a few grinds of pepper and salt didn't change a thing. Thanks for everying Susie D. :)
