Orzo Salad with Cucumber, Red Onion, and Mint
We wanted to put the emphasis on salad, not pasta.
Why This Recipe Works
We quickly decided that orzo was our pasta of choice for this easy salad. Its small shape performs its supporting role perfectly, providing just enough bulk to make the salad satisfying but not so much that it becomes too filling. After all, we wanted this salad to be light without being too hefty. Cucumber, red onion, and mint add delicate grassy flavors and crunchy texture.
