This salad is cool and refreshing; very easy to make. Similar to an ambrosia salad but the orzo gives it a different twist. Serve this at your next shower, picnic, potluck, summer BBQ, Easter dinner, etc. Prepare the night before serving.

I needed a fruity salad for our 4th of July BBQ and this one was very different and quite good. I didn't see where to add in the pineapple and mandarin oranges so I added them in step 5. Worked out fine. I made it the night before as suggested. Thanks for the rec, Tara.

Remember to make this the night before (live and learn!) and to BEAT THE EGGS before using them.
