This was a fair amount of work, but was an excellent, balanced dish. I used less zucchini (next time would use the full amount) and less orzo (because I wanted it to be less about the pasta). It was so delicious!
Excellent and easy....I did add chicken to make it a complete meal, and since its not BBQ season, I just sautéed the zucchini and corn on the top of the stove. Served warm with the goat cheese sprinkled on top. Hubby and two teens all enjoyed.
As another reviewer had mentioned, I bet you could use yogurt instead of mayo and get the same result. I'd also add some chicken and make it a complete meal!
Do you serve this warm or cold? Can it be made ahead?
Tried this recipe today and really enjoyed it. Two modifications (I know, I know, I hate it when people do this): I really dislike mayo, so I used plain yogurt instead, and I didn't have orzo on hand so I used a combination of corkscrews and bowties. The yogurt gave a little extra tanginess, and the bowties helped hold the corn while taking a bite. Definitely a keeper!
Loved it! Fresh yet creamy and tangy!! Will totally share at my next BBQ!
So I guess this recipe just popped up here at the time of this writing and it has no reviews. But it sounded good so I decided to give it a try anyway. Well, it is good, it's VERY good! It's actually going into my recipe box as a good veggie salad to make on a regular basis. The one thing I noticed about this salad was that the zest and tang from the dressing is balanced out by the creaminess of the orzo, corn, and zucchini. I got a great taste of both flavors at the same time. Loved it!
