MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 10, 2014

Such a beautiful looking and amazing salad with fantastic flavor. I use 3/4 - 1 C of orzo, about 8 C spinach and halved grape tomatoes. I haven't needed to make extra dressing because of the ingredient increase, but could easily do so. The dressing is soooo good!

Love this! Anytime I can use tarragon I am happy. And when it's a hot summer day, salads like this are a tasty treat!

I've made this recipe a couple of times since discovering it. It is very flavorful and light and goes well with meat or seafood.
