I enjoy making salads during the summer that I keep on hand to make meals easier. I love pasta salads, especially ones using orzo. This one was inspired by my herb garden. I had an abundance of oregano and marjoram, so I thought I would use those in a pasta salad. I am not a huge fan of mayonaise, so I do more with olive oils and vinegars. This salad also incorporates soft goat cheese which blends in to become part of the dressing. This salad does not have a lot of dressing, so it's not very saucy. I really liked the ease of preparation and the flavor was fabulous. My husband gave it a thumbs up. Hope you enjoy it as well.
