Servings 8


  • 1 1/2 cups Orzo Pasta
  • 4 Mini Sweet Peppers cubed
  • 1/2 Red Onion chopped
  • 1 cup Pitted Green Olives halved
  • 2 Ears of Corn raw and cut off the cob
  • 12 oz. Cherry Tomatoes halved
  • Handful Parsley stems removed and chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. Dijon Mustard
  • 4 Tbsp. Extra Virgin Kalamata Olive Oil
  • 4 Tbsp. Wine Vinegar
  • Salt and Black Pepper to taste


  • Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Once boiling, add the orzo and cook for one to two minutes less than the package instructions. Drain the pasta and rinse in cold water to cool off the pasta quickly. If preparing the pasta ahead of time, add a drizzle of olive oil to the pasta and mix so that they don't stick together while cooling off.
  • Add all of the ingredients into a large bowl and mix together. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve. Salute and cin cin!
