Summer Corn & Orzo Salad

This is a recipe my mom has been making for years. Light, fresh, and delicious. It’s a great summer side salad for a picnic, BBQ, or just to go alongside some grilled chicken or shrimp.


  • 5 cups Corn, fresh or frozen thawed
  • 16 oz Orzo
  • 1 cup Greek black olives, pitted & halved (black olives work here too)
  • 2 Red Pepper, chopped
  • ½ cup Fresh Basil, coarsely chopped
  • ½ cup Fresh Parsley, coarsely chopped
  • ¼ cup Olive Oil
  • ¼ cup White Wine Vinegar
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste


  1. Cook and drain orzo according to package directions.
  2. Add all other ingredients.
  3. Serve cold or at room temperature.
