  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook orzo in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, about 11 minutes. Drain and transfer to a bowl; refrigerate until chilled.
  2. Whisk mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, sour cream, orange juice, curry powder, salt, and pepper together in a bowl until dressing is smooth; cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until chilled, at least 30 minutes.
  3. Mix pineapple, chicken, celery, apple, grapes, and green onions together in a bowl. Stir orzo and dressing into pineapple mixture. Gently fold oranges into salad and top with pumpkin seeds.


  • Cook's Note:
  • You can use any combination of fruit or substitute lemon juice for orange juice for different flavor. Use any pasta in place of orzo. Combinations are endless.
  • Serve immediately or refrigerate for up to 2 days. Right before serving, sprinkle with salted pumpkin seeds and garnish with a few fresh mint leaves.
