DH and I really enjoyed this flavorful orzo salad from my Stonewall Kitchen "Harvest" cookbook. I served it as a side to Bobby Flay's Grilled Quesadillas With Feta, Spinach, and Olive-Lemon Relish 426408, for a nice meatless meal. DH and I agreed that we could see this really being a hit at summer BBQs. Interestingly, while the zip of the vinegar was really nice and pronounced when I served it shortly after making, the flavor was less intense when I had some for leftovers the next day, so I would plan on eating this salad the same day to get the most flavor from it. We didn't make with the edible flowers. We chilled for about 30-40 minutes before serving. Prep time includes chill time in the fridge--I read the directions below to mean chill for 30 minutes before serving it, but maybe I was reading it wrong? Either way it was good!.
