An easy side, this Caprese Orzo Salad combines tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and basil with a yummy homemade balsamic vinaigrette. Make ahead!
Whisk together the balsamic vinegar, olive oil, honey and garlic. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Cook orzo according to directions, drain and rinse with cold water. Set aside to cool. You want it to be cold so that when you mix the mozzarella in, it doesn’t melt.
Mix the cooled orzo, mozzarella, tomatoes, and basil in a large bowl. Pour dressing over salad and mix well. Season with salt and pepper if needed.
