"Very simple, but absolutely delicious."
"Delicious and soooo easy! Made it as a side for BBQ salmon. I will definitely be making this again!"
"I was looking for an Orzo Salad recipe to replace one I lost years ago. I was happy to discover this is WAY better than my old one. Now I'm glad I lost it!"
"This is really good. I made it just after noon to have with dinner tonight. Of course, I had to taste it, even before it chilled and boy, is it delicious! It will go great with one of summer's bounties, an all vegetable dinner. Fresh garden tomatoes, cucumber salad, skillet sauted cabbage, vine-ripened Pureheart seedless watermelon, and of course, fresh-from-the-field sweet corn. Thanks for posting this wonderful Orzo-Tomato Salad."
"This was a delicious salad and so quick to put together. We all enjoyed it so much. I mixed up the olives with black and green. I can never find real good flavorful tomatoes except for the Campari tomatoes. Much bigger than cherry tomatoes but smaller than regular, so I used about 4 of them coarsely chopped. I also used dried dill and added some extra as posted and it turned out wonderful. This is such a great refreshing salad to have for lunch. I had assembled all the salad ingredients except the feta the night before, and in the morning before going to work I added the feta. Made for Comfort Cafe '09. Thanks for posting Dancer^"
"Fantastic and delicious!! I added chopped spinach to mine and used black olives in place of the green."
"delish! added spinach and extra lemon juice and zest. very fresh!"
"Wonderful recipe! It was done in 20 minutes, no joke. Great flavor, inexpensive ingredients, and versitile enough to use as a light meal or a side dish. I've made it a few times, each with success: -I prepared it just as posted and it was fantastic. -For a vegan alteration: I doubled the amount of tomatoes and olives (using kalamata in addition to the green). We didn't even miss the feta, but I found that it could be sprinkled over or mixed into the salad at the time of serving and it was even more delicious. Thanks so much!"
"Very refreshing....I'm not a fan of olives so I left those out and tossed with with baby spinach instead. "
"Absolutely delicious! I added some leftover chicken for a wonderful salad supper using about one teaspoon of dried dill. Can't wait till the summer comes to try this again using garden fresh dill and parsley. Thanks for sharing!"
