Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pasta salad Substituted my favorite pasta. Easy recipe. I used about 1/2 cup red peppers diced. Very good.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mediterranean Orzo Salad Easy enough, this Mediterranean Orzo Salad, was a simple but flavorful recipe. If you do not like Orzo then you should not make this recipe, but I am a lover of Orzo and the HVR was the cherry on the top! Yes, I will make this again, lunch as an option.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Easy Sidedish, but not super flavorful If I made this recipe again, I would try and adjust the measurements to allow it to have more flavor. Definitely something to make again and adjust!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It tasted alright. It could definitely use a little more flavor. Not a fan of orzo.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from WRONG instructions! The original, and correct recipe, calls for 1 (one) CUP uncooked orzo pasta. NOT, repeat, NOT, 1 (0ne) POUND!!! The result of the current recipe will result in dry, flavorless salad. Please correct this recipe!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interesting combination This is good but I felt that the dressing somewhat overwhelmed the orzo a bit. Next time I would only use half.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Orzo Salad You'll love this classic with the new Hidden Valley twist. One thing I changed (because it's what I had on hand) was used red, yellow and orange peppers instead of just red; made the salad very colorful. Loved by all!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from light and tasty My daughter found this recipe several years ago, when she was 15 or 16. She has claimed it as her own and makes it for a bbq side dish, often. Everyone loves it and is excited about a "new" pasta salad.
