Greek Orzo Pasta Salad

This is modeled after my favorite Orzo Pasta Salad from Whole Foods. I like to cook a batch and snack on for days or have it for a side dish for dinner. I usually add about 2 tblsp of juice from the kalamata olives because I love the flavor, but you dont have to. Great for a BBQ or party!

    Excellent and easy to make! I made this with the ingredients I had on hand, so I replaced sun-dried tomatoes with spinach, used green onions instead of red onions, and added some diced cucumbers.
