      We really enjoyed this. My DS asked for more. His first plate was half the salad. But he skipped the olives. I enjoyed the olives with this. I had frozen zucchini that I shredded fresh from the garden this past summer. I didn`t salt it because when you defrost it it loses most of the water with a squeeze. I also didn`t add salt to the water. High blood pressure so we need to control the intake. I find lemon help in the replacement of salt as the olives have a high content of it. I did use a very rich long cooked turkey broth, yes salt free. I do agree with Boomette the recipe does call for a large amount. Five stars the way I made it. Do give this a try. Thanks ellie!

      I wish I would have liked it even more. I found it too salty. And I didn't add the salt with the orzo. Maybe it was my chicken broth that was too salty. I suggest to use low-sodium chicken broth.
