lauren_hewittlong 1m agoThis was amazers. I love orzo. The combination of ingredients are Devine.
jdriemeyer 1y agoI really liked this salad. Orzo is such a great texture. I think olives, as suggested, would really give the flavor a boost, but it was fine without.
scootersweb 2y agoMy family enjoyed this one very much. I didn't have enough feta and spinach in the packages that I purchased and wished I would have had enough. It is very simple and worth trying if you like to experiment. Went very well with the "Crockpot Brown Sugar and Balsamic Glazed Pork Loin" and "Roasted Califlower." - Which are both on Big Oven
