Orzo-Cucumber Salad

Satisfy With A Simple, Flavorful Salad

(NAPSA) - Tired of traditional potato salad? Orzo-Cucumber Salad is easier to make than classic potato salad and is a fresh addition to any summer menu. Delicate orzo pasta is tossed with olive oil and summer garden vegetables, along with cucumbers and onions for added crunch. Fresh dill and grated lemon peel round out the light flavors.
