Orzo Salad Recipes

Confession time, I never tried orzo before. 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.

 

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

Orzo Salad Dressing

I like to try different things to create recipes. At one point, I would not climb out my comfort zone, to venture and try new food items. Growing up the most exotic pasta was a lasagna. So had you asked me 10 years ago to make an orzo salad dressing, I would have looked at you like you were crazy.

 

Now, I love making homemade salad dressings. For this orzo salad dressing, I went with a lemon dijon dressing. I love how lemon and Dijon taste when comes together.
