In a large, covered, non-stick pot, bring water and chicken or vegetable bullion to a boil. Add orzo and reduce to a low boil.
Cook orzo for 7 minutes, then set aside to cool. Place all of the dressing ingredients in a mason jar, tighten the lid, then shake.
When orzo has cooled, add tomatoes, onion, basil, mint, cucumbers and ¾ of the dressing. Toss and chill for at least 3 hours, but preferably overnight.
Add remaining dressing and toss right before serving.
