READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by G. Ramirez

I just made this recipe up for a party I was cooking for. We needed a pasta salad to go with the mexican theme. I think it turned out awesome!!! Makes a lot, you may want to halve it.

Very tasty orzo salad using all kinds of FRESH ingredients! I tightly packed my cilantro and it made for a pretty strong pesto. You could loosely pack the cilantro for a more mild result. This dish could also be made with a basil or spinach pesto and taste great. For this version I served lime wedges on the side. Very enjoyable, thanks G. Ramirez. [Made for Bargain Basement Tag]
