Orzo Kale Summer Salad is the perfect addition as it’s a light and simple summer salad.

Orzo, also known as risoni, is a form of short-cut pasta, shaped like a large grain of rice. Orzo is traditionally made from flour, but it can also be made of whole grain. It is often made with semolina, a type of flour made from durum wheat

  1. What a delicious sounding salad Esme. I’ve made pasta and rice salads, but not orzo (we usually just add it in when cooking rice). I love the artichoke and olives in this – I think everyone will really enjoy it (& they are fussy with salads)! Thanks for sharing.
