Cranberry Orzo Spinach Salad

My daughter-in-law's sister brought a salad to a family function, and I immediately fell in love with it. When I got home, I created my own version of what is now the cranberry orzo spinach salad. With its citrusy vinaigrette, briny capers, salty feta and sweet-tart dried cranberries, it's the perfect combination of flavors. —Jennifer Nystrom, Pooler, Georgia
