Pasta salads are a great option when you need a quick dinner or lunch because there are so many varieties. Last week I prepared an orzo and chicken salad with cranberries and almonds. This recipe is incredibly delicious and very easy to prepare. What I like most is the perfect balance of sweet and savory.
