Orzo is a kind of Italian pasta made with semolina. It's similar to rice in size and shape. In restaurants across the U.S., it's often served cold or in soups. I like to use orzo in salads dressed with olive oil, vinegar and other Mediterranean ingredients like green olives and kalamatas, grilled peppers and feta cheese.
