I wanted to try these flavors together along with garlic and Parmesan cheese = Success

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This orzo salad is big on flavor and oh so good. We liked the sweetness of the snow peas and fresh spinach. Sun-dried tomatoes give the salad a touch of tartness. Easy to make and perfect for spring, you can enjoy this as a side dish or a main meal.
