My Review

I wish the dressing on this had a little more punch – for me the orzo salad at Costco is a little bland. I do wonder if maybe it was better if the dressing came on the side and I tossed it myself at home (maybe the dressing absorbs into the pasta?)? I don’t dislike this at all – its not bad – but I can’t say I ever think about how amazing it is, or crave it.

I do think it’s the dressing – I add a little of my own extra dressing and that helps. I make my own use the little Good Seasons packets. That said, if you prefer yours with a more mild dressing, or will be serving this to a crowd and think that’s better suited for a group – I don’t discourage getting it! Many people really like it. It’s just not an enthusiastic two thumbs up from me.

Meal Combination Ideas

Pair it with prepared sandwiches, or with falafel and tzatziki, or serve it on the side of a rotisserie chicken! Greek orzo salad from Costco is also a good shortcut side dish for hosting – from backyard bbqs to baby showers – this is a crowd pleaser!
