  1. I have been using orzo for pasta salad for years. In fact I use many different pastas for my pasta salads. One of the favorites using orzo is the Orzo Caprese. 12 0z orzo, two cups cherry toms cut in half, two cups basil chiffonade, and one package mozzarella pearls. For the dressing I make a simple Italian and replace the red wine vin with balsamic vin. Salt and pepper to taste. Of course orzo is great for any pasta salad mix. Cheers,
