  • Very good though it benefited from some extra seasoning and some olives. Made this for a potluck and it was very popular. - 8/27/13

  • This was very good, just a little bland. I kicked it up with some garlic powder, more basil & oregano & some dill, plus a little more vinegar. Was a hit at Memorial Day picnic! - 5/28/13

  • Changed up the veggies a bit and only added the red pepper and substituted green onions for red. Also added a bit more vinegar. This was a fabulous side dish for both fish and chicken (used it 2 days in a row!). Definitely will make again! - 4/14/12

  • Loved this salad...had enough for the whole week. Next time I will double the vegetables. I do not always eat enough veggies and this is a great way to get them in my menu plan. - 3/24/12

  • I needed a salad that would work as a main course for vegetarians, a side dish for the meat-lovers, a healthy dish with plenty of fresh veggies for health-seekers. This totally fit the bill. As a side dish, it probably serves 16. I got many compliments tonight for this dish. - 7/31/11

  • I used cous cous instead of orzo, but this was fantastic! It got rave reviews at ladies night. And 1/2 cup serving is plenty (this recipe makes a HUGE batch) if you're having it as a side item. DELICOUS! People were asking for the recipe... thank you for posting!! - 4/3/11

  • My hubby and I love this salad! I had fresh basil and fresh mint that I used (omitted the oregano) in the dressing. Also added a serving of large cooked shrimp. I bet you could change up to veggies of personal preference. Such a wonderful meal. Will be making it again for sure. This is a winner! - 8/21/10
