Tony’s Featured Recipe: Caprese Orzo Salad

Caprese Orzo Salad This morning on North Dakota Today, Tony featured the recipe for one of our favorite summertime salads, Caprese Orzo Salad. To watch his video demonstration, CLICK HERE.

The small, oval-shaped orzo noodles add uniqueness and elegance to this pasta salad, making it stand out from more traditional versions. Tony tosses the pasta with halved grape tomatoes, torn basil, cubes of fresh mozzarella and a simple dressing of extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper. Toasted pine nuts are used to garnish, and voila – the perfect summer salad is born.

This salad can be made a day in advance, and is perfect for graduation parties, barbecues and picnics. We love to serve it with walleye or grilled chicken, but it’s so versatile it will go with anything. Simple, easy, elegant and delicious – brought to you today from The Lost Italian. Enjoy!
