This was really good. The only things I did different were to add some diced cucumbers and some yellow pepper. I also used more orzo & shrimp than the recipe called for, so I doubled the dressing.

I made a few changes to this one but it was really enjoyable all the same. Firstly I went and brought cooked prawns as the green prawns were way too large for a salad, therefore I skipped on the marinating on these. I also used 2 tomatoes and a upped the pasta to 1 cup. The flavours were fab...an enjoyable lunch on a hot summers day. Reviewed for Fall 2008 PAC
