How to Make Orzo Salad
- Cook the pasta as per package instructions. Leave it al-dente meaning it has a little tiny bit of a bite. Do not overcook it. Drain it and place it in a bowl. Cool down completely.
Add all the vegetables and mix. Season with salt, pepper, lemon juice and olive oil and toss it. Taste it and adjust the salt if necessary. Serve.
