Meat Free Mondays- Orzo Salad

I first discovered Danielle through tiktok when she posted a video on this super simple easy orzo salad, it looked so delicious so I hade to try it for myself. Lets just stay I'm hooked. Its so lovely and very different to anything I have had before.

This would work great as a main dish, on the side with something else or as a side dish for a bbq.
