Herb Vegetable Orzo Salad

Rated as 4.51 out of 5 Stars

"The chilled salad our Test Kitchen tossed together is an ideal warm-weather refresher. Golden corn, grape tomatoes and fresh basil bring the very best of summer to the table. Subtly salty olives add an interesting contrast to the other sun-sweetened veggies"
