Wonderful with a summertime BBQ! This needs to chill for 2 hours before serving. I have even added in 2 firm chopped tomatoes JUST before serving. Double up on the ingredients to feed a crowd!

Surprisingly good. It's quite filling and I ate it as a meal on its own.

I doubled this for a party. It was quick and easy to make and tasted nice and light. I added red bell pepper for some crunch, we were out of lemons so I added some red wine vinegar and only about 1 cup of mayo for the double recipe. Everybody enjoyed it and went back for seconds! Thanks for the great recipe.

This is GREAT! I'm not sure if I was supposed to start with 3 1/4 cups of uncooked orzo or end up with that amount of it cooked but I used 1 1/2 cups of dried orzo which seemed to more than double after cooking it. I kept the other amounts the same and it turned out perfect. I subbed cilantro for the parsley. Both my Mother and Husband raved about it and they don't do that with very many recipes. I would like to try this with crunchy bell peppers added. Made for Zaar Tag.
