– orzo pasta cooked per  package instructions – mozzarella pearls – cherry tomatoes – Fresh basil cut in chiffonade


– olive oil – balsamic vinegar – salt – pepper – clove finely minced  garlic

Balsamic Dressing Ingredients


Cook orzo pasta according to directions. Drain, stir in olive oil so the orzo doesn’t stick together. As it’s cooling, you will have to stir it a few times.

In a separate mason jar, mix all balsamic dressing ingredients together.  Note: the mason jar has measurement markings on it.  Shake well prior to serving.

Mix tomato halves, mozzarella pearls and basil into orzo. Add some of the dressing, reserving the balance to add just prior to serving. Enjoy!
