Orzo Pasta Salad

For those end of summer BBQ's or year-round house parties -


Cook 1 box Orzo Pasta, drain and let it cool off. Once cooled, add in:

1 can red kidney beans

1 can small black olives

1 red onion (chopped)

Carrots and Celery (chopped)

Cheese, chopped in small squares ( I used Sharp Cheddar but you can add any kind you like)

2 tbsp Olive Oil

1-2 tbsp Balsamic Vinegar


Mix well! Other ingredients you may wish to add: pepperoni, artichokes, green pepper, tomatoes


*Just a tip - add a bit of salad dressing before serving (not more than a couple tablespoons. Italian, Greek or a Vinegarette work well)
