Salmon Orzo Salad
1/2 cup three cheese Italian salad dressing
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1/4 cup mayonnaise
3 tbs milk
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
16-oz package orzo pasta
16-oz can salmon, drained
2 cups grape tomatoes
1 yellow bell pepper, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 cup diced Havarti or Muenster cheese
1 cup frozen baby peas
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. In large bowl, combine salad dressing, yogurt, mayonnaise, milk, and Parmesan cheese and mix well.
Flake salmon and add to dressing mixture along with tomatoes, bell peppers, and cheese and stir gently. Top with peas. Do not stir.
Cook pasta according to package directions until al dente.
Drain and add to salad in bowl. Stir gently to combine. Cover and chill for 2-3 hours to blend flavors before serving.
Note: If the bell peppers aren’t reduced — you know the kind, where you have to cut off the ‘bad’ parts, just use the less expensive green ones.

Yum, this sounds delicious! Would you believe that I had orzo for the first time on thanksgiving this year when we got together with friends/fam and everyone brought a potluck dish. It’s not something that I see at the grocery stores here . .
