orzo salad with cranberries pecans


from the equal exchange website, contributed by brian albert, director of finance for equal exchange, this salad is full of healthy goodness and a variety of textures and flavors. i haven't tried this yet, posted for safe keeping. i think this might be good with a raspberry vinegar as an option. note: recipe states 1/2 box of orzo -- i'm assuming a 1-pound box, so 8 ounces would be half. serving size is estimated.
