Orzo with Everything
Everything but the kitchen sink in this summer picnic orzo salad.
Why This Recipe Works
In this Orzo with Everything recipe, we boost the wonderful flavor of orzo with ingredients like sun-dried tomatoes, kalamata olives, and pine nuts. Toasting the pine nuts made them taste nuttier, as long as we watched them closely to ensure they didn’t burn. Pitting the olives was made easier by placing them on a cutting board and holding the flat edge of a large knife over them. We carefully hit the blade with a fist to smash the olives, and separate the pit from the olive meat with our fingers.
