Orzo Salad

Makes: 10 servings

Description: This salad is a great one for BBQs throughout the summer. It was given to me by my friend Elli many years ago, and is a family favorite during the summer months. The orzo salad is great with chicken, pork, or beef. Carries well so you can use it on picnics too.

1 box  orzo
1 to 2  cucumbers, chopped
1 to 2  beefsteak tomatoes, chopped
1/2 lb.  feta, crumbled
1 tbsp.  fresh parsley, chopped
1 bottle  caesar dressing (low fat, or fat free ok)

Instructions: Cook orzo as directed on package. Drain and cool completely. Place orzo in a large bowl and mix with the cucumber, tomatoes, crumbled feta, and parsley. Pour in the caesar dressing to taste (you may not use the entire bottle). Chill in the refrigerator until ready to use.
