When I can't think of something to cook, I often go to my archives and find an old favorite to try again. I sometimes end up tweaking my original recipes even further to make them that much better. This orzo salad was one of my first ever recipes to get posted on this blog. It deserves to be revisited, it's the quickest summer salad to throw together.
1 Box of Orzo cooked until al dente'
1/3 Cup Black Olives
Assorted Colored Peppers (Red, Yellow, Orange and Green), chopped small
1/3 Cup Craisins
1/8 Cup Vinegar
1 Tsp. Salt
3 Tablespoons Olive oil
1/2 Tsp. Garlic Powder
1 Tsp. Sugar
1. Combine cooked orzo once cooled with black olives, chopped peppers and craisins in a large bowl.
2. In a smaller sauce bowl, combine vinegar, olive oil, salt, garlic powder and sugar.
3. Pour the dressing over the orzo and give it a big mix to combine it all. Serve at room temperature or refrigerate in a sealable container for as long as 48 hours.
