I made this for ZWT 9's trip to Greece, but will have it again. Great flavors and so pretty. I did add the tomatoes and made my olives Kalamata. It could also use diced red onion instead of the green for a more Greek taste. Thanks for posting!

Lovely and refreshing! I made this to bring to my Uncles house for the 4th of July. I used whole wheat orzo and added extra lemon juice and lemon zest. I also used sliced small sweet peppers (red, orange and yellow). I think this would be great with cucumber too. Made for the ZWT4- Jefes.

Fantastic salad, so refreshing and easy to make. We had it with grilled turkey cutlets for a light summer dinner.<br/>Made for ZWT 9 / Greece for The Apron String Travelers

I really enjoyed this fresh tasting salad! It was quick and easy to prepare, which made it ideal for a work night or other times when you need just a very light meal. I can see why this is a hit at BBQs. The only change I made was to use all olive oil and I used kalamata olives instead of black olives, which I chopped instead of sliced for more even distribution. I agree with Brooke that the cherry tomatoes are a must. I would definitely make this salad again. I chilled for about an hour before I ate a little and ran out the door. I am excited to try the leftovers tomorrow after the flavors have melded even more. Thanks, Charmie! Made for ZWT6.

This was fantastic! I absolutely loved all of the wonderful Greek flavors to this salad. I added penne noodles to it, because I realized last minute that I only had about 2 ounces of orzo and the family was excited to try this today. Thanks for a great recipe Charmie! Made for ZWT^ - LOONEY SPOON PHOODIES! :D :D :D

Great Greek salad! I sweetened the dressing up a little with some honey as the dressing was nice and tart and I was afraid it wouldn't lend itself to the meal quite right. It all worked out wonderfully! Used kalamata's and the optional cherry tomatoes, halved (and I think the tomatoes are a must). Made for ZWT6.

Very refreshing pasta salad. Surprisingly, I've never used orzo in a pasta salad (why?) - it's shape lends itself well to being eaten neatly. Thanks for a good recipe.

Charmie - Love this salad. I really am surprised you havn't received more reviews. My husband who is not a big pasta salad fan thought it was awesome as well. I did cut up some cucumbers up and added those. Nice and light for summer
