Grilled Orzo Salad

A few years ago I went to a cooking class at my local Wegman’s supermarket.  It was a great class on grilling.  I learned a log of great tips and techniques.  One of the recipes they made that night was a Grilled Orzo Salad.  I must have liked the recipe, because I found it buried deep in my recipe stash. 

Is It a Keeper?

Now I know why I saved this recipe all of the years ago!  It’s awesome!  Very light and very easy!  A perfect summer side dish or a light lunch.  Seriously, this recipe comes together in no time.   I especially love the flavor from the grilled veggies.  It gives them a nice texture and a great smokiness.

The original recipe didn’t include the red onion, but I love grilled onion so I added it.  That’s what’s great about this recipe.  You can add/remove veggies.  So, go out and see what looks good at your local farmer’s market and play around with this recipe!  You can’t go wrong!

* And, if you don’t have access to Wegman’s Basting Oil, you easily substitute extra virgin olive oil.

What veggies would you add to this recipe?

  1. What other veggies would I add? Well, I would probably ditch the corn and add lots of other stuff – eggplant, zucchini, maybe even tomato! This salad looks great – I love the idea of grilling the veggies – I always forget to try doing that!
