Palm Beach Orzo Salad

   Serves 10 to 12

Red Wine Vinaigrette

  • 1/3 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1½ teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1½ teaspoons sugar
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2/3 cups olive oil

Salad

  • 3 cups orzo
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 (10-ounce) package frozen peas
  • 1 cup chopped black olives
  • 1 cup golden raisins
  • ½ cup chopped red onion
  • ½ cup chopped fresh parsley
  • Pepper to taste

Method

To prepare the vinaigrette, whisk the vinegar, Dijon mustard, sugar, salt and pepper in a bowl until blended. Add the olive oil gradually, whisking constantly until thickened.

   To prepare the salad, cook the pasta in boiling salted water in a saucepan for 8 to 10 minutes or until desired tenderness. Drain in a colander and rinse with warm water.

   Toss the warm pasta and vinaigrette in a bowl until coated. Add the bell peppers, peas, olives, raisins, onion, parsley and mix well. Season with salt and pepper. Serve at room temperature.

 

**To save time, chop the vegetables the night before preparation and store, covered, in the refrigerator.
