This was well received at our knitting pot luck. I used 1 1/2 cups of orzo and it made plenty. Next time I will add some crushed garlic to the dressing. Thanks for posting.
This was a delicious light and fresh tasting salad. I added about 1/4 cup of fresh dill. I'll be making this again and again. Thanks for posting!
This is the best Greek salad I have ever tasted. All of the flavors blend together perfectly. It makes a great side dish - or main course. It never lasts very long when I make it!! Thanks, Christine! Can't wait to see more of your recipes.
