Orzo Pasta Salad with Dried Cranberries

When I make this, everyone always wants the recipe. I hope you enjoy this pasta salad with your favorite dishes or as a side for your BBQ.



Step: 1

Bring water, orzo, and salt to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until orzo is tender, 20 to 25 minutes.

Step: 2

Rinse orzo under cold water and scrape into a large bowl. Let cool for 20 minutes.

Step: 3

Stir in green onions, celery, cranberries, lemon juice, sesame oil, vinegar, olive oil, and cayenne pepper. Let stand at room temperature until flavors blend, about 1 hour. Stir in pecans and cilantro before serving.
