I am not a huge fan of pasta salads and would normally prefer a leafy, fruity kind of salad. Or a grilled vegetable salad is also great.

But this Minty Orzo and Grape Salad is definitely the exception.

I do not use Orzo much, but I always have some in the pantry for this salad and I use Orzo in a few appetizers as well.

Once the Orzo is cooked, which only takes about 10 minutes anyway, the salad is almost done.

Whilst the Orzo cooks, prepare the fruit, cheese and the rest of the ingredients. Toss all together with the cooled Orzo – whip up the light Lemon dressing and drizzle over.
