(Makes 4 cups)

A perfect salad for a hot summer day. Simple to make and the only thing you have to cook is the orzo. Choose the tastiest tomatoes in season — whether they are the small grape cherry tomatoes, vine-ripened heirloom or other locally grown tomatoes. Add onions, feta, and a few fresh herbs and you have a colorful, tasty salad that can serve as a side or main dish.

Planning a picnic in the park or your backyard? Serve this salad with cold sliced deli ham, mixed green and arugula salad, a crunchy whole-grain roll and a wedge of honeydew melon for dessert.
