    CraftScout's Note:

    This was modified from a recipe that I got from Celestial Seasonings. Boiling the orzo in peppermint tea really gives the pasta a minty flavor, and a slightly brown look - like it's made from whole wheat pasta. I loved going out to my new garden and picking the fresh herbs for this recipe and loved the way they tasted in this very fresh tasting pasta salad. A note of warning though, this makes 8 meal-sized servings, not side dish servings.

      Good, simple, and light. Makes a great summer side dish. Bought some lemon, garlic, and oregano feta by mistake but it worked well in this dish. I'd use a purple onion next time, I thought the regular white onion was a little strong, and probably add more mint just cause I love it. Enjoyed it! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

      My whole family loved this! I made it as part of a Mediterranean meal. I served souvlaki, hummus and pita bread and tzatsiki. I will definitely be making this again!
