    Kim12469's Note:

    Giada De Laurentiis recipe that is awesome. I made this to take camping and add to a potluck. It was so easy and it keeps so well. I use a Spring Mix instead of Arugula and use whole wheat orzo. I make big batches and take it for lunch at work.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the pasta and cook until tender but still firm to the bite, stirring occasionally, about 8 to 10 minutes.
    2. 2
      Drain pasta and put the pasta on a large cookie sheet.
    3. 3
      Drizzle the pasta with 3 tablespoons olive oil, toss, spread out, and set aside to cool.
    4. 4
      Once the orzo is cool, transfer to a large serving bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and toss gently to combine. Serve.
    5. 5
      Prep time doesn't include cooling time for orzo but it does cool rather quickly.

      This is a delicious recipe. I was impressed how the leftovers held up in the fridge. The ricotta salata is a fantastic taste in it, next time I plan to add extra.

      Yep. . .perfection, just as I suspected. Great balance of flavors. I used arugula and it gives the dish a slight zip. Also loved the faint taste of basil in the background. A great dish that would be fun for Christmas given the colors! FYI. . .it is just as good on day 2 and day 3.

      This is a great summer salad! Delicious and a nice twist on traditional pasta salad. I highly recommend the ricotta salata if you can find it.
