Orzo Salad

I recently had a large gathering and a variety of foods were served. One of these foods was orzo salad. Orzo is one of those versatile little pastas. I love it in soups, especially pasta fagioli, an Italian soup. Orzo salad is prepared with orzo, fresh vegetables and herbs, feta cheese, black olives,  and a dressing which can be made with the included recipe. Any Greek dressing also will work and taste equally delicious!
