Orzo Pasta and Cucumber Salad Recipe

One night last week we were grilling steaks.  My husband requested macaroni salad to go with his steak and I, quite frankly, couldn't think of anything more disgusting. ;)  So I created this lovely, light & refreshing Orzo Pasta and Cucumber Salad Recipe.  It's super good felt over.  I had it for lunch a couple times and added feta and chicken.  

This is a quick and easy recipe that's perfect for your summer time barbecues.  It would go great with burgers and Watermelon Mojitos!
