I was in search of a pasta salad recipe that would help make a dent in the large container of whole wheat orzo in my cabinet. I came across this one which uses zucchini and onion. There were a few tears shed while grating the onion, but otherwise this was a very easy recipe to make. Based on comments in the original article, I added chopped fresh basil.
The zucchini almost got lost here, so I would use at least 2 grated zucchini next time. I would also use a touch more olive oil since the orzo seemed to absorb much of the dressing while standing. It’s a versatile recipe though, so you should feel to play as the article suggests!
