This salad is cool and refreshing; very easy to make. Similar to an ambrosia salad but the orzo gives it a different twist. Serve this at your next shower, picnic, potluck, summer BBQ, Easter dinner, etc. Prepare the night before serving.

    I needed a fruity salad for our 4th of July BBQ and this one was very different and quite good. I didn't see where to add in the pineapple and mandarin oranges so I added them in step 5. Worked out fine. I made it the night before as suggested. Thanks for the rec, Tara.

    Remember to make this the night before (live and learn!) and to BEAT THE EGGS before using them.

    This is a great old recipe that has hung in there for a good reason. It's really good! Years ago it was called "frog eye salad" because of the shape of the pasta (which is still available,) called acini de pepe. Try it you'll like it.
