This pasta salad has a delicious, bright flavor. It's perfect for summer cookouts.

"Really good. I made exactly per instructions but used 1/4 olive oil instead of 1/2 cup. I loved the orzo! And the corn and green beans were awesome. Next time I would decrease the scallions to less than 1/4 cup as it is a little strong with onion. The tarragon was a great herb with the dijon but I may try some basil next time. It's a strong dijon dressing so if you don't like too much of that flavor, I would decrease the dijon to 1T or less. My husband LOVED the dijon dressing but it was a little strong for me. With a couple small changes I will for sure make this again."

Used fresh oregano from the garden and it was great. Halved the dressing recipe and it was the perfect amount. Thanks much!

I used canned beans instead of fresh, but it was still tasty but not as colorful. My family loved it. I did also use a honey mustard and a stone ground instead of Dijon because it was what I had on hand. A keeper!

Great summer salad! I didn't have tarragon or shallots handy, and it still tasted great. Perfect for fresh seasonal produce.
