  • Pro tip: Greek orzo salad may be made a few hours in advance, but the orzo will absorb the dressing. Simply toss with enough dressing to coat, then add more just before serving.
  • Orzo may be substituted with your favorite gluten-free or regular pasta.
  • The homemade Greek dressing may be subbed with lemon vinaigrette or your favorite store bought dressing.
