“This vegetarian and light Greek Orzo Salad recipe came from The Fresh 20 website. It was super easy to make and full of good flavor. I ate it as a main course, but it also could be eaten as a side dish. Personally, I left off the lemon, but I have included it on the recipe since the original called for it.”
