Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Two five star ratings and if it's good enough for a caterer, it is good enough for me. I am making this before Thanksgiving to test it...and if all goes well, it will be on my table at Thanksgiving. IT may say summer salad, but I always like a cold pasta salad to be served as well. The thing that makes me curious is the mint. Can't wait to try it!

Made this true to recipe and it is delicious!

I'm a Caterer & just made this Orzo/Pea Salad today for my banquet. It was very well received. If I make any changes in the future; I may boil orzo in lite Chicken Broth. And very slightly lessen the ratio of vinegar. Regardless ... a winning dish !!
