A few more recipes to try at home - Orzo Pasta and Poppy Seed Dressing

Marcy Lautanen-Raleigh herb mix herb seasoning recipe salt substitute

Today I have some summertime recipes.  The first is a cold salad.  And then several ways to prepare great poppy seed dressings to use on lettuce salads and fruit salads.  June is National Salad month, so gear up with these great recipes.

Orzo and Herbs

This recipe is quick and simple and you can use several different seasoning blends to make it a different dish every time you serve it.

Bring water to boil in a large pot. Stir in the orzo and cook for 6 minutes. Place the herbs, oil, salt and pepper in a serving bowl, whisk together lightly. When the pasta is ready, drain well and add it to the bowl. Toss and serve whether hot or cold.
