Orzo Salad Recipe

Confession time, I never tried orzo before. I wasn’t sure how to cook orzo. That was until a co-worker made an orzo salad recipe and wanted me to try it. I thought that orzo was rice, imagine my surprise to find it was actually a pasta.

 

Her orzo salad recipe was amazing. After trying her orzo salad, I decided to research orzo salad recipes, what I found is that this little rice like pasta is very versatile.

How To Cook Orzo

I have learned how to cook orzo. Making an orzo recipe is simple. 

  • Bring water to boil
  • Add 8 ounces (1-1/2 cups) dried orzo to boiling water
  • Boil the orzo about 10 minutes or until it has a firm, chewy texture, stirring occasionally to prevent it from sticking.
  • Drain orzo in a colander.
