Orzo Salad

Cucumber Tomato 

This refreshing and zippy Cucumber Tomato Orzo Salad is always a hit at gatherings and is one of my go-to recipes when I need to bring a side dish.

Water Chicken or Vegetable Bullion Orzo Pasta Grape Tomatoes Red Onion Basil Leaves Mint Leaves Cucumbers


Red Wine Vinegar Grape Seed Oil Lemon Juice Honey Salt & Pepper


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 and partially cover. Cook, stirring frequently for 7 minutes. Move orzo to a large bowl and set aside to cool. Prepare the dressing by placing all of the ingredients in a mason jar, tighten the lid, then shake.

When orzo has cooled, add tomatoes, onion, basil, mint, cucumbers and 3/4 of the dressing. Toss. Chill for at least 3 hours, preferably overnight. Add remaining dressing and toss right before serving.

"This is my all-time favorite summer pasta salad. It’s tangy and light!"
