Gluten-free Summer Orzo Salad

I had this orzo salad for the first time in the Bahamas. It's very tasty and is a total summer food. I hadn't made it in years since I haven't been able to find gluten-free orzo anywhere. This changed on a recent trip to Wegman's in PA. There is a brand Delallo that is very common in stores down there that makes a great gluten-free pasta that comes in all sorts of varieties including orzo!

This recipe is delicious warm or cold, but I prefer a little warm as the pasta is a little more malleable then. I found golden balsamic at my local Stop and Shop so I haven't tried the substitution so I don't know how it works. 

I like to dice everything up really tiny so it doesn't overwhelm the little orzos. If the honey and balsamic vinegar don't mix well, I recommend putting it in the microwave for a few seconds to loosen it up a bit. I also only use about half an onion as I don't like it to be the dominant vegetable. Mix everything while the orzo is warm so it combines well. 

Pair with chicken wings or burgers and corn on the con for a delicious summer meal!
