Summer Orzo Salad

Catching the last yields for the summer. This is a terrific, light and easy recipe and a great way to sneak in pasta and not feel bad about it. (I’m always seeking that!)

I found this recipe on the Oh My Veggies blog, a terrific vegetarian blog with lots of fresh recipes and great ideas. I followed the recipe almost exactly but I grilled the corn.
