Cook the pasta according to the directions on the box, omitting oil if it calls for it. Drain the pasta and let it cool.

For the salad: Pour the orzo into a bowl and add in all of the chopped vegetables and the feta cheese. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss until everything is combined.

Serve immediately or chill in the fridge.

Delicious! Thanks for the great recipe. If you are taking this to a gathering i would double the ingredients but not the dressing.
