Orzo…what is it? Featured in our Santorini Chicken Kabobs and Summer Orzo Salad, orzo is rice-shaped pasta.Â Orzo soaks up the lemony vinaigrette that gives this meal bright summery flavor. Cook orzo the same way as you would any other pasta – in plenty of water. Although typically pasta should not be rinsed after cooking, when making pasta salad we rinse pasta to remove the thin coating of starch that will yield a sticky texture on cold pasta. Toss with the vinaigrette and enjoy immediately or chill in fridge to enjoy later.
If you’re a gluten-free disher, this salad is great with rice swapped out for the pasta.
