DIRECTIONS

  • Cook orzo pasta in boiling water for about 4 minutes.
  • Rinse with cold water and drain.
  • Place in a large bowl.
  • In a liquid measuring cup with a spout, mix the dressing ingredients together.
  • Slice the water chestnuts if they weren't presliced, and then cut the slices into quarters to make small pieces.
  • Add these to the bowl with the pasta.
  • Add the broccoli, onions, bell pepper, peas, carrots, and sprouts to the bowl, and mix gently but thoroughly.
  • Add the dressing and mix again.
  • Refrigerate several hours or overnight.
  • Before serving, stir the salad up to remix it, and sprinkle sunflower kernals on top.
  • Thinly slice the orange and then cut the slices in half.
  • Stand these up around the edge of the bowl as a garnish.
  • Serve cold or at room temperature.
